The Invisible Man Plagiarizes
Wallace Stevens

I placed a jar in Tennessee
to see if poor white trash
would come out to see.

Instead, the Air Force
sent bombers
to neutralize the threat.

The welfare department
searched in vain
for whoever abandoned the jar.

A Chicano scholar
wrote a research paper
to see if it pertained to chicanery.

I placed a jar Tennessee
to create another poem
that you could see through.

The see-through poem
being the rarest of all-----
You can not see this line!
