I wonder if the last

I wonder if the last statement in this poem is ultimately how society wants to 'see' the mentally ill- a cure is a kind of socail blindness- we do not want these people upsetting a certain kind of harmony and by becoming invisible and blending in then they are automatically cured. We do not appreciate the delicate balancing act that is necessary in order for them to remain satisfactorily invisible.
