Ant Envy

x

An ant crawls across the screen

x

I haven’t smushed it

x

And I won’t

x

It’s springtime

x

Leave the ant alone

x

I know

x

The ant is never

By itself

x

It’s crossed three times by now

x

And I can’t tell

(too dark)

If it’s on the frame

Or does it go inside

Then out the back

The other side

x

Which is a perspective

And a journey

I would envy
