Anonymity

by Thaddeus Rutkowski

You can reveal more personal things
when you’re anonymous.
You can say anything you want,
because no one knows
who you are or where to find you.
No one can humiliate
or embarrass you.
But when people around you
are also anonymous
you can’t reach them, either.
If one of them dies,
You might hear about the passing,
but you won’t be invited
to the memorial service.
The family of the deceased
won’t know who you are.
