  • Story is sprouted from Deniz Dutton's story, Masks

    Beneath this mask lies
    the soul of a panther
    cheeks like a chipmunk
    a nose like an elephant
    eyes like a fly
    ears like a rabbit
    and the lips of a monkey

    every now and then i peak out
    from behind the mask
    all my parts act out in their typical manner
    it gets very confusing
    quickly i hide behind the mask
    and wait until all parts are in sync again.

    Mask photo was taken at a recent Stanley Kubrick exhibit at LACMA.
    Behind the mask is another story.
