Masks Belong on Faces

Masks belong on faces,
Not on joyful lives.
Men, parade your husbands!
Women, flaunt your wives!

Masks Belong on Faces is part of the poem series Felicitations by Felicia Nimue Ackerman. Ackerman is a professor of philosophy at Brown University and has had over 200 poems published in a wide range of places. We are lucky to get to have a few of them published right here at Options Magazine.
