Each of us lives a life improbable,
the gift of an ancestor who struggled
through some terror which killed others.
We each have an iron impulse
to maintain a cracking grip on life,
but some won't ever be pried away,
growing like the stunted pine
that juts from the mountainside:
gnarled but indestructible.
with your life improbable.
