The other upsides of masks

Since the life-saving effect
clearly isn’t compelling enough
for many people
I’d like to promote the other
upsides of masks

like pairing one with sunglasses
is essentially like being a spy

and how I would have been so grateful
when I was a teenager
to cover the pimples
on those exact parts of my face

and what about garlic bread for lunch
not being an issue

a favourite of mine
is that I can mouth
my secrets
in public

like today
at the drugstore
when I confessed everything
to the cashier

who couldn’t possibly
have read my lips
behind my mask

and yet his eyes
turned so kind
it was almost
as good.
