I wore my magic coat

and somehow ceased to be.

I walked right past you in it,

and you never noticed me.

#

I wore my magic coat

and it made me very small.

Without my even trying

I became a fly upon the wall.

#

I wore my magic coat

and blended into the crowd.

But what I saw, and what I heard

pushed me to cry out loud.

#

I wore my magic coat

years passing in the trade.

Invisible was I, unable to sustain

the compromise earlier made.
