Sheila is Wearing Another Mask
Sheila’s co-workers are abuzz.
She is wearing another Christmas mask
I cannot believe it
She has worn a different one for twelve days in a row
Rudolph, Frosty, Dasher, Icicles, Christmas trees, snowflakes,
Elves, Santa, Mrs. Claus, North pole, gifts, wrapping paper
What could be left? What has she not worn yet?
Christmas cat, christmas pig, christmas cow, christmas card,
Christmas carolers, christmas donkeys, christmas dinosaur.
I look over at the mask-wearer.
Sheila is grinning while she writes down all of their suggestions.
