on the sidewalk

Orginal Photograph by Elissa Malcohn

On the side-
walk under-
neath the green
awning I
walk. I see a
worm and think
of Emily,
her eyesight
better than
mine. This worm
is dried
out, curled
into a
circle wait-
ing for a
bird to dis-
cover the
math of the
situation.

  1. Emily is one of my favorite people. “the math of the situation” is definitely a perspective I’m not used to. You have a great way of writing things one can mull over. Fantastic job!

    • I initially wanted to emulate “a bird came down the walk” but didn’t have access to a copy when I was writing and like what came out.
