Preyed

Photographer: Yasser Al-Zayyat

Life is such

that one does not know

all the dangers present

beyond immediate focus

 

To go about daily routine

the nub of the now,

supporting others,

dreaming for the future

 

All the while,

danger is on your watch

at the periphery

stalking, waiting to pounce

 

Too busy,

too consumed,

too myopic

to see danger at the margins
