Purim Greetings

By Simon Jacobson

May you be turned inside out
upside down
and outside in

May your masks be masked
and your inside unmasked
May your countenance (panim) shine from within (panim)
as you meet yourself face to face

May your masquerade no longer be needed
as the shrouds fade away

May your child smile and dance
as the facade is lifted

May you just be
