A Month of Masks by Katherine Yets

My boyfriend left me

and thought it was a good idea

to send me a picture

of himself every day.

This was over a year ago,

and now, I stumble on one of these photos

and laugh.

Black and white for dramatic affect

his head cocked to the side

bar light illuminates his face.

His finger rests on his temple,

and I wonder what he was thinking.

Katherine Yets recently received her BA in English with a writing emphasis from UW- Whitewater.  She currently resides in a small hodunk town in WI, which inspires her daily.  She plans to continue on to graduate school in the very near future.
