Shedding layers, continued


To/o now shed layers
By Francis Scudellari

To/o now shed layers, made
Rheumy, false skins remove,
Strip bare facades, costumed
Everyday, worn out-
Ward shows, for others (in)
Sane, high-mannered walls raze

To/o simple appearance,
Bearable masked, cast off
Many-faced, surface-cut
Arrangement, untidy
Boxes, open-lid toss
Aside: new lines spoken

To/o plastic smile, attached
Persona peel, (a)way
Leaving only, naked
Put-on amorphous, gray
Shaded come ... placate no
One, else wanting to see
