Saving Face

That is some face

framed by snaking black hair

right behind the glass

highly visible

precisely to be so seen

by everybody

whom you never really see

look past us all

you free from care and money problems

a powerful presence and pretty thin

how one camera lens can kill countlessly

everyone believing you are you

with those hypnotizing eyes

hiding a truth

there is no you

looking through and beyond us

promising death does not wait for all of us

like you

somehow a missed invitation

your lie holding us as stone

right behind the glass
