Mask

I see you in pictures
Joking.
Pulling faces.
Never serious.
Ever the clown,
Shouting to the camera
Look! Look at me!
And then
This one.
Quiet.
Thoughtful.
Your eyes averted,
Unfocused.
The camera almost forgotten.
And in this I see
That part of you so carefully
Hidden,
Wrapped in smiles,
Swaddled in jests.
Precious and fragile,
The essence of you.
