Ani Chaucer

Moments of invisibility are unsettling,

but they feel like home.

Like a juxtaposition.

A dissonance.

Sand paper refining a piece of glass.

It hurts, but it’s addicting.

Like a tattoo on bare skin.

To feel invisible is to simultaneously be otherworldly and be fully human.

I’m terrified of the moment, but I anticipate it’s arrival.

May I never let go of value of invisibility.

the dam is breaking

well, better yet,

it already broke

the water rushes in

well, better yet,

it controls me

my head is hurting

well, better yet,

it is throbbing

my eyes are swollen

well, better yet,

they are closing
