The first ones to turn play practical jokes, eavesdrop, watch strangers undress, do what they can’t do seen. They themselves boast of such deeds. Occasionally, money goes missing from registers or items disappear from store shelves. But generally the invisibility is thought of as a novelty: Something exciting, temporary. The visible grow tired of looking around, however, wondering where the disembodied voice might emanate from next. They find themselves cringing from the once-thrilling sensation of unseen hands. They plead with the invisible to put on clothing and resume normal, perceptible lives.
