Monday Self Portrait: Never Again





From my poetry chapbook Calypso Red

Lesson Learned

Once my name was
Made-Herself-Invisible.
I conjured my disappearance
not through incantations
or potions concocted
from essence of larkspur
and eye of newt
but by hiding my light
in a man's shadow.

Now my name is
Never Again.
