Richard Hart

“Invisible” is one part of a triptych, a holy trinity of Bruce Hornsby songs (“Sticks and Stones,” “What the Hell Happened?,” “Invisible”) written for and about those of us born without the good fortune inherent in facial symmetry and excellent bone structure. When the protagonist of Janis Ian’s “Seventeen” plays the final chord, and the scene then fades to black, the following scene finds Janis Ian’s protagonist entering a roomful of strangers and, with no place to hide, withdrawing–but not so as to surrender, but to, instead, reign victorious: “Look at me all you wish. It matters not, for you cannot hurt me; you cannot hurt me, for I have made myself “Invisible.”
