Poet’s Corner


Hiding in plain sight
By Lucas Thors

Blue fabric
A missing expression
Breathing stale

Thank circumstance
A safeguard wrapped in cellophane
Easy anonymity

Hard to connect
In a faceless fever dream
Where everyone seems alien

Elastics stretch
Past smiles and scowls
While some hope to hide
Their visage already veiled
