You Need to Wear a Mask

I heard that, when you go outside,

you need to wear a mask.

I'm not sure what the reason is.

I didn't think to ask.

My mother made a mask for me

then sent me to the store

for eggs and milk and toilet paper

and a few things more.

I don't think I'll do that again

since everybody saw

me shopping in a frilly mask

my mom made from a bra.
