  • A masquerade with my closest friends
    lacks the required mystery.
    I know you from our fake-name days.
    Don't deny those signature side glances.
    Over there, that glitter tattoo won't fool.
    Give up the red herrings and mock menacing.

    You're you.

    And champagne toasts to that.
    It's the eve of a year new
    and I'd rather be with you.
