Stashed in: Poetry!

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

"I am an invisible man. No, I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allan Poe; nor am I one of your Hollywood-movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids____ and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me. Like the bodiless heads you see sometimes in circus sideshows, it is as though i have been surrounded by mirrors of hard, distorting glass. When they approach me they see only my surroundings, themselves, or figments of their imagination____ indeed, everything and anything except me." Ellison

Those words are poetry.

Beautiful picture too, Gillian.
