Some find it quite sufficient to endure
In permanent and unremitting pain,
X-ing out all else but getting through
The day with neither loss nor hope of gain,
Yearning more for closure than for cure.

Such find faith in difficult terrain,
Immersed in grace both vivid and unsure,
Xerophytes that do as they must do.
