Lucky to be alive;

breathing cool air

gasping absent air.

An unfinished portrait.


Lucky to be young;

faced with uncertainty,

dared by uncertainty.

An unpaid expense.


Lucky to be sheltered;

living in moderation,

forced into moderation –

an unforeseen event.


Lucky to be welcome;

standing in a doorway,

crouching beneath the doorway –

not so welcome after all.
