lower half of my face covered

to protect myself and others

from a deadly disease

some people see it as

an assault on their freedom

to them i say

what about wearing pants?

masks are uncomfortable

they make it difficult to breathe

to hear and be heard

muslim women are derided

for covering their faces

and asian people

for wearing masks

now it’s everyone’s normal

i am happy to no longer be

breathed on by strangers

more pandemics will come

i hope masks become part

of our everyday lives
