Alone, unannounced, a face in a crowd
Needs must in some circumstances,
Only making one’s presence felt if necessary.
Not wanting to be in the limelight,
Yearning for solitude.
Mostly in the background, simply ‘there’
Otherwise a phantom of imagination,
Utterly bland and insignificant,
Silent, subdued, perhaps even secret.
