Costume changes

Ash Wednesday.  First a client (no collar), then speaking dust in English and Spanish in the library (collar), and  now a job interview (no collar, and on third thought, no ashes).  Costume changes, but still the same underneath.  Dust, even shining gold dust.  Like everyone.

This has been a day
Of costume changes.
I feel like the child
Who goes through the dress-up closet
To find the right fairy princess
No tiara but still a day
Of costume changes.
I wash my face
Change out of the clerical collar
For the job interview.
I do not know what I will wear
For dinner.
It remains to be seen
Or in this case
