He moved through our world quietly

transient, but not in a way you might notice

he did not create drama;  did not seek out conflict 

 

Certain people come and go with little fanfare

if you would ask later, after the fact,  many will not remember seeing him

his appearance was nondescript,  his behavior unremarkable

 

Were there pictures of his time here?

Does anyone have written evidence of his existence 

did he have a residence,  did he take up space? 

 

Few of us keep track of the cars that drive through our streets without stopping 

or airplane passengers who deboard alone, walking through our terminals, 

seeking an exit,  not familar faces  

 

Our days are filled with what we know and who we know

it is easy to disregard the lives that stroll by us 

visible, but not considered
