The Mask

A mask on my face - a mud mask.
To make me - who?
Someone new?
Or maybe just a new... me?
I will find out when I wash it off.
Or maybe I will wash off a part of my self...
Terrifying thought...
I left the mask on for twelve minutes - the instructions said five to ten - just to be on the safe side.
I felt my face all shrivelled up.
Then I washed it off with lukewarm water - just like the instructions said.
And when I looked in the mirror,
It was still ME staring back at myself...
