• Maddy Rain


He tears himself apart

Rips his chest in two

The audience gasps

The audience laughs

At his beating heart

He wears no clothes

But he wears a mask

To cover his true face

As he shows you

Everything in between

He has a mask for

Every mood

Every season

But his face is his

He keeps it safe

In a drawer by the door

He no longer knows it

Wouldn’t recognize it

In the crowd

But he needs them

Though they don’t need him

The audience

Like mice on a wheel

Keep his cogs turning

If they stop laughing

He’ll sink to the ocean floor

And return his body to the Earth
