Curtain Call

by Anna Martinez

I surrender to lesser days.

Trying to save face
I wear a mask
Paint every line
Perfectly in each crevice
Caress the gentle expressions
Until they resemble my own.

I carve empty spaces
With careful precision
So I can fill the mold
For the person I want to be
The person I am.

My soul empty,
The masses appeased.
