Bearded Ballads 19/30: Cosplay

Cape and cowl
will not protect you.

They may
soften the blow,
but in the end
the scars and bruises
will remain,
toughening you up
thick-skinned and
a hardened heart.

This only proves to widen the gap
like the expanse
of a city street
the glittering glass
facets of danger
worn to conceal
the relationships
hidden in the night.

through the shadows
sleeping with the enemy
whom you flush out
into the light.
