100% Survival Rate

Nobody suspects they’re the ones
who won’t survive;
elders on heart medicine or
kids who’ve never grown potato –
what does it mean to survive
if nobody we know is going to die?

What world do they anticipate,
what drive to survive will remain
when they are rousted, mid-dream,
to discover a world
where a survivor must truly,
truly, be alone.
