A Background Life

A Background Life

Slight
Movements detected
Made out
Amongst the shadows
Beyond the centre stage
Out of reach of the lights
And audience eyes
A life being lived
Although its containment
Edges and exchanges
Remain out of sight
It’ll have a start
And an end

It’s dimensions
May slip
From agreed logic and
Nods and affirming handshakes
And common agreement
It’ll remain
Carrying out
It’s obscure tasks and
Past times
Broken though they may be
Staring out
From parallel lines
Across unclaimed land
From
A background life
