It Wasn't Me!

ugly mask

Isn't it odd that more people feel at home in masks than their own face or identity. They tend to really be the people they always wanted. One might even say masks are like money; liberaters from concern of social critique. Tis not that the public opinion matters; just very little because I am less dependent on the limitations they could impose under these circumstances. What power do masks posess or are they simply liberators of a power already at work within us held captive by social norms? Its always funny to watch Cops or whatever and they all cry it wasn't me until the word "video" comes up. A hush falls like a once defiant chin.
