From The Invisibility Exhibit, published by Talonbooks in 2008. Done up in drag, he’s half-grinning. Really, he couldn’t be expected to take it seriously; it’s all just good PR, the suspension’s aftermath. His beard shaved for the occasion, there’s a pinprick of dried blood on his bruised cheek where the punch landed and the home team’s fans cheered. That’s past. Now he’s just a man in a dress on the street, passers-by on each side, no Plexiglas. No one asking for autographs.
