Regarding Masks from the African Plains

Again any thoughts welcome…

Regarding Masks from the African Plains

He spoke with a French accent
and that was alright.
After all he was very old. Frighteningly so
how could I compete with that?
I closed my eyes, but my ears betrayed me.
Sneaking his image past my drawn eyelids.
In my dreams he wore a crown,
the thorns made him bleed.
Why should I mind? He didn’t.
I slept and slept. Perhaps I still am.
Anything is possible in a world of masks.
I swore I was snoring. Hell
at one point very loudly.
Nobody seemed to notice.
So why should I?

    You’ll have to show me the original because I forget it, but I like this one a lot.
