How Will I Know You
How will I know you,
the man behind the mask.
I can recognise you
with the mask in place.
And sometimes it may slip and reveal ....
another layer, another mask, perhaps
masquerading as an unguarded comment
wearing stage clothes, even if naked.
You are in there somewhere.
But even though I peel off
layer after layer,
mystery after mystery
I still never find you.
