A Face In The Crowd by Lynn White



Once I could be seen,

was known by my face,
my dress, my demeanour
recognisable in a crowd.
Now I have disappeared.
Even if larger than life,
even if upside down
I would still be invisible.
A few wrinkles is all it took
to fade away
to become
than a face
in the crowd.
To become no one.
