The Mask (a Tanka)

Laughing in public
Always a smile for the crowd
A mask perfected
Nobody will ever hear
The wailing in the deep night.

4/4/17

This tanka is my second response to Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 28 – LAUGH & CRY (I substituted “laughing” for “laugh” and “wailing” for “cry”)

Poem #6 for National Poetry Writing Month (aka #NaPoWriMo)
