    Millipede on Macadam

     

    Subject: Millipede on Macadem


    This Cyanide emitting Apheloria virginiensis corrugata is undaunted, a small wonder here in the small state of Delaware. Though it was a small encounter on a perfect summer day, it carried a big stick lesson of hope. Like this millipede, it would be easy to succumb to a world whose sheer forward momentum far outstrips its ability to solve or cure it's dangers and mounting imperfections.

    Like the millipede in a world of danger,
    I just need to slow down,
    soak in the warmth of macadam,
    hear, note and locate the birds,
    roll out hemidemisemiquaver locomotion
    in perfect time with all limbs,
    leaving no room, time or space for judgement,
    every path or field, an open hope quest for survival,
    each moment a segmented calabash,
    synesthetic gathering all clues with all senses.
    Like the millipede, seize the day,
    since chance, or strokes of happenstance will quickly make you prey.
    A small wonder in a small state.
