The Invisible Person

by James Laughlin

James Laughlin

Life kept rolling her over
like a piece of driftwood

in the surf of an angry sea
she was intelligent and beau-

tiful and well-off she made
friends easily yet she wasn’t

able to put the pieces to-
gether into any recognizable

shape she wasn’t sure who
she wanted to be so she

ended up being no one in par-
ticular she made herself al-

most invisible she was the
person you loved so much who

really wasn’t there at all.
