A mask on the wall

devil mask
Mask on the bathroom wall of artist Anado McLauchlin, La Cieneguita, Guanajuato, México
 


A mask on the wall of the bath
Represents such unholy wrath
That bathers do quake,
And shiver and shake,
While viewing the mask in the bath.

hush of holiness

on her neighbor’s wall
