A Difference in Nothing

by Myra Pearson


sometimes the self bottoms out
leaks out gives out
in parts too light to
cast a shadow you
want to put it in that
proper place you
claw at air because
you can’t see
a difference in nothing
and what you are made of
is getting away but
they told you being
invisible was your power
and that you could buy
a life of meaning
that money could crash
the glass ceiling
why did you ever believe
the voices that move into
your head but don’t pay rent?
