Behind Those Masks

Lurks Some Huge Hairy Fear

Mouths primly muzzled
so the flaring nostrils,
furtive eyes dart

about in the shades
of rimmed glasses
and hooded heads nod
only to acknowledge
ungloved hands willfully held
by the sides, lest they go
for a deathly grip as done
before the grizzly monster
danced into the arena
to chase the clad ones,
afraid now…
