It’s Day 9 of Writing101 Poetry Course and the prompt is Camouflage by Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha
For today’s poem, take inspiration from camouflage — you may apply it in any way you like, whether you write about visual or social dissimulation, or focus on the way we hide our myriad emotions, actions, and reactions. What would be your ultimate smokescreen, concealment, or mask?
Et voilà, here is my interpretation.
Can you really see
What you get
Or what you believe
Hostage of one facet
