“This Is Shyness”

Invisibility: a fine and private place.

Darkness becomes her,
[they said].
[And here I am], just Ella,
resenting the hero.

Speak,
girl reading.
[But my voice is]
a tangle of knots.

September girls
[go] wildwood dancing.
The different girl [is] there but for the
gingerbread.

The memory of after [the]
midnight riot
[is] some kind of fairytale.
Gone.

Transparent: among the hidden.
