bug walk

a little bug walking up the curve of a leaf

blade of green pointed into the sky

little bug keeps on

scuttling up

still climbing 

legs connecting like its walking in space

this one’s upside down on the leaf

and it looks normal

but to walk on the leaf

it’s like walking on the moon

spinning vortex 

and some dimension you’ve only heard myths about

for the bug

just another moment 

passing as it climbs

and keeps moving
