Sharing Our Truths: The Mask – L. Stevens

Call me what you will
Never forget you made me
to protect you from what kills
Call me what you will
a shield, a shroud, still
no guarantee
Call me what you will
Never forget. You made me

She finished second in little infinite’s first haiku contest and her poetry has been featured by Pack Poetry and Freeverse Revolution.

    I am honored that Christine Ray is including my poem The Mask in her Sharing Our Truths series. The initiative is gathering poetry from many wonderful writers chronicling their reactions to Covid-19, and I am very happy to be a part of it. You can read more on her blog Brave and Reckless, and at the collective site hereticsloversmadmen.com.
