BIG (three haikus on being)

Daily Post prompt, “mask” – I always feel like I’m not really an adult, though I’m thirty-nine years old.  I’m simply pretending, playing some role in one big, crazy D&D RPG.   Decisions would be so much simpler for a twenty sided die.

We wear adult suits
And make-believe that we have
Our shit together.

If my daughter knew
How much I played it by ear,
She’d be terrified.

I wonder – did my
Parents wear masks just like me,
Trying to be big?
