“Composition of the U.S.”

Composition of the U.S.
Men
outside of time
not part of the Brotherhood,
down after the death of Clifton.

Feelings of
obligation to include the
invisible people.

Jack’s blindness, a glass
eye for Santa Claus
because why not?

The “Great White Father’s”
job
is to tell them
after Brother Clifton’s death
that
crowds flocked
to his funeral.

(From American Lit. notes on Invisible Man)
