Black Mask

book17-11 copy

1996 gouache on paper 16 x 12 inches

I Know It’s You  May 27, 1996

I’d like to ask

What made you wear that black mask?

Did it make you feel strong, standing there

Wearing only that?

Didn’t it feel wrong gripping that black whip,

Or did it help you deal with your lack

Of courage?
