Hardly Here at Any Moment, Hardly Ever Here at All

"There are no

mistakes in life;"

there is only

life, and life

begins and ends in

all individuals,

all organisms, and

in all their bits

and pieces before

them, during them,

but not to their

awareness, not fully.

And you were not

here for your birth,

and you will not

be here for your death.

All you will

ever know of either

is the lapse of consciousness

that comes with sleep,

and even that

you only swallow

in retrospect, oblivion

as a nightly gap

in being you, you

who comes and goes

but is always only here,

and alive, when here at all.
