Trading Visibilities – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

5 Lines – Invisible





Trading Visibilities

I live with my contradictions
trading visibilities at low value
wanting visibility and wanting invisibility,
confused, they never come at the right time,
they sail without me.

  3. Lucky is the person who has what he wants and wants what he has. Usually, there is an imbalance one way or the other.
