mask.

i undresed my anger

and found

grief

hiding,

naked and neglected.

— mask.

…and it’s important to add, that when I speak, or write of grief, that I personally include, loss. And that is what I am trying to convey here, that loss — especially in childhood when one doesn’t always know how to process the incredibly strong emotions that come with that helpless feeling of having things/people/stability/security ripped from you — can lead to a myriad of masks.
