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.

Yellow butterfly,
you rest within the shadows
that mask a stone wall.

a frisson of fear—
remembering the fierce mask
on her neighbor’s wall

Jerry Kilbride’s haiku about a wheelchair child inspires me to write a new haiku about a child in a mask:

 

the wheelchair child
reaches for bubbles
she just blew

With her magic mask,
a girl sees fiery comets
whooshing through the streets.

terrifying all who pass—
