Faces or Facades

 

Faces

Full faces, fat faces, gaunt faces, frightening faces, festive faces, freaked-out faces

Plastered on Paris, shellacked on signs, tagged on trains, brushed onto billboards

Painted with spray painting, painted by hand painting, painted pumped with air painting

Robust reds, vibrant violets, beautiful blues, gorgeous greens or golds, bold black borders

Bizarre backgrounds like Dali, strange shapes like Picasso, crazy caricatures like Warhol

Faces are the first we see in anyone; on anyone

Faces can be fronts. Covers for the covert.  Faces can mean respect – or false respect. 

Faces speak without saying one word yet speak volumes

Guises to the gullible.  Veils for the visage.  Forwardness fronts for fear.  The inverse can be true

Assumptions of arrogance.  Airs of attitude. Rudeness is a ruse for respect.  Faces front all

Faces

While painted with spray painting, painted by hand painting

Painted pumped with air painting; they also can be fronts. Covers for the covert

Faces speak without saying one word yet speak volumes

Faces are the first we see in anyone; on anyone

Plastered on Paris, shellacked on signs, tagged on trains, brushed onto billboards

False faces fool the fools.  The clever can get past the cloak, the disguise and find – truth.
