we forget at times
that monsters will always have the best of masks
that they are more adept
at costuming
before consuming

they walk among us
calling themselves names and titles
that are supposed to be familiar and safe
they hide among avatars and pixels
texting sharpens their talons further

we must remember
that monsters will always possess the best of masks
and that there are many among us
who bear more scars than victims in Technicolor pictures
and that they can’t shut off the screams so easily
