I have lived many lives,
developing identities
contrary to my own,
anticipating starters’ pistols,
wasting time.
So though you see what I have wrought
do not take this for truth.
It is as yet
a mask.



To what extent does the writer remain hidden behind a mask? Doesn’t the very act of remaining hidden reveal something?
