Unseen Life

sinking in change
deep into murky uncertainty
fighting the white-hot
struggle to take
one more breath

never lucid this mortal coil
pushing back against
the imposing crowd
going down, down
the wind plucked away

counting on little
triumphs so few
shackled and bound
to an unseen life

hiding beneath every surface
