Super Power

I can be invisible now, seconds after walking into the room.

The trick is staying silent and controlling the volume of the laughter.

One burst of guffaw and they see me; if only for a moment… before the eyes glass over and the thought of, ‘is that old bastard laughing at us?’ is lost moments later to the next wise diatribe.

The entertainment appears endless however this too is an allusion as they too will grow past this stage and I will be somewhere else.

I have earned this I tell myself…

It could be I’m just blessed.
