  5. There are always stories behind masks. Hearing them is sometimes difficult.

  9. This might be my favorite of yours thus far. I love haiku, and you seemed to really take advantage of the format. I've read plenty that are boring and lifeless, but this is far from either. I really enjoyed the read.
