What Does the Fawkes Say?
By Amara Ngozi
I don this mask in protest,
I become anonymous,
I hide from tears of liberty
dispensed by canister.
I am hidden behind the face of the people
and I am the face not afraid to be seen.
If you can breathe the free air,
remember the filter-fed taste of our resistance
and the façades we put up to tear down others.
