camouflage

In the military
we would go to the woods
and disappear,
sunny and hot and hidden
In the poison ivy;
face paint was mud and green
I was lost in the crowd, unseen,
In the trees or on the plain
Or standing in front of you
screaming and shouting and shooting:
camouflage hid it all…
I was the invisible man
amongst men – transparent
