Refusal to Remain Invisible

invisible_backspinefront

For years now
I have been
                  climbing
                  clawing
                  scratching
                  to make my way into the light

to that place
where I will be
                  seen
                  heard
                  acknowledged
                  recognized
                  for all that makes me who I am

Because
nobody else has
                  what I have to offer

From here on out
I refuse
                  to remain invisible


Refusal to Remain Invisible is my fifth collection of poems.

A recurring theme in this collection is the struggle to be seen and heard when the world renders people invisible—something we are seeing a lot of in 2015. The individual poems address personal struggles of identity, current events, small moments in everyday life, and observations about memory, time, and mortality. There are also references to pop culture, the pleasures of vinho verde, and coffee—and one cat poem.
