Invisible Woman
by Dorothy Alexander

She once turned heads as she passed
through the world. Her hair, her eyes,
her sleek body with curves and contours
like the gardens of Versailles, energy
emanating from her in atmospheric waves.

Now, of a certain age, she traverses the universe,
invisible to the naked eye, becoming smaller,
shrinking to nothing, in this world of youth,
in this place where all the young are blind.
