part of the scenery

beyond him there were buildings
places that people would go to find meaning
or not

from this angle they weren’t yet insects
but they did carry on in their pattern
pushing metal from place to place
or just slowly crawling
along some unseen path
ever forward
no abrupt stops
changes of pace
or even a stop

so thorough were they in their execution
so quietly complacent
they were no more than the background
or they could be
having blended in
as part of the scenery

it was hard to see
how anyone in this place
ever got any work done at all
