two-faced creatures

two faces as depicted on

ancient coins/janus/masks

in lieu of faces

the artist has seen in ancient

plays of greek dramatists/

aischylos/sophocles/euripides

where masks were used –

behind the mask hides the

real culprit –

venice/carnival/extraordinary

garb/wondrous and elaborate

masks.

g verdi’s ‘un balla di mascara

pavarotti sings even today –

we wear nose and mouth masks

but eyes will still speak/even more

the artist draws half faces

or what he’ll see: eyes/eyes/eyes.

two-faced creatures dance

in everybody there’ one

have you noticed?

more two-faced creatures will

come-out into the open

not any longer just in thrillers

and dreams.
