Today I read an article about Caterpillar Inc. They are opening a new laboratory at University of Illinois. This inspired today's headline poem.
A Caterpillar's View
Open petals fall to make
without the glass and without the stones
because down here amongst the
weeds that grow without being planted
and the shadows that live alongside the sun
and the moss which slips but does not always slide,
nostrils flared with anger
all look the same,
just don't see the point in that.
