Perpetual Camouflage

It’s Poetics Tuesday over at dVerse.

The writing prompt is invisible.


 

when a chameleon

is trapped

in perpetual camouflage

 

or your reflection

in the mirror

and its gut-punching

silence when you ask

(like an idiot!)

who’s the fairest

of

them

all.

 

It’s when you realize

the world has suddenly

gone blind

to you of

a certain age.

 

That’s what invisible feels like.

  1. love that image of a chameleon trapped in camouflage, truly eerily invisible. your second part is more thought provoking, is it just age that lends us invisible, sometimes race and colour do the same. such a powerful response to the prompt.
