Painted Face - Poem by Mario William Vitale

People hide behind masks because they don’t want to expose their true selves.
The man on the mountain can’t come down because he is occupied by his curiosity.
I bet you thought that curiosity killed the cat. Painted faces in the night can leave such a fright.
Blind monkeys on the tree hanging down so heavenly.
Let’s not forget, "Painted Faces"
