5 – In the Moment

The ant

in the deep grout

of the tile floor

in the bathroom

of the Welcome Center

at mile marker 8

stops every few inches

(for itself a mile)

to inspect

then turns




while I wonder

what it eats

and where it sleeps

and if


it ever scales a wall

to see what comes next.
