about face

The Changeling

My face unmasked by the atom polaroid of x-ray exposure.
Though structure appears askew, foundation fractured and fissured,
mirror image reveals the mercy shown by the veil of flesh and skin,
an elastic, changeable mask I manipulate for the masses,
with the knowledge tucked safely behind the hint of a grin
that only your loving eyes will ever really know my true face.
