Favorite Quote:
Adversity is the foundation of virtue -- Japanese Proverb

I was framed for being who I am not.
A trickster, with deceptions rolling
off my sleeves while slithering all across
the floor, creating illusions of where I am.
And with a final silent bow,
I left before I was gone.

The author's comments:
I love watching illusionists play tricks on people. Then I imagined someone who tried to trick people by not being there.
