Everybody put on a mask
Hide your face mouth nose
No one can see
How you really feel  

We tried to protect ourselves
Hide from a deadly virus
Hide means to hide out
Cover up, conceal
Let nothing find me

You thought it was the mask
Before that it was the talking slab
Mine alone, my world
I me mine, you are

Beyond the mask
There are eyeglass windows
Places where I see you
You see me

A passing glance, an acquaintance
A nod of understanding
Recognition that we have met
Across the human chasm
We are here, together
