The commonwealth, life in.

That with which and
That with which we cannot

Hold back the years--
We've been punctuated by a wild toll.
Not that we've stopped.
--even paused.

These ribbons of riches descend a natural stair
And we slip like banked fishes,
Hoping if not to find Them
Then to resume breathing.
