Pretending

Old man wears an older man’s mask.
Everyone else wears masks their age
Towards a dysfunctional family mask.

Mom wears dysfunctional wife gear,
A dad whose organism is crumbling.
Small organisms are a confusion too.

Third party mask chills out in a pub
On its cigarette stubs between rants
About parents lost bodies in a plane.

All works out to  group photographs.
You just pretend to be someone else
As old man’s tongue pretends dead.

(After watching a Hindi flick Kapoor and Sons)
