National Poetry Month: Masked




Moonlight sings

on a revelry night,

a seduction veil of lace and lies

Secrets beyond the smiles, past the pretty facade

the temptation tango unfolds

beneath someone else’s face

for the night

a stray whisper teases

an elevation of convention

that untamed liberty of anonymity

camouflaged within another skin

of fabric and fancy

until dawn
