 Consider the Inch-worm

   hunch stretch
               bunch reach
                           each inch
                           a measured movement
                           each movement
                           a moment's pleasure,
                                             each sure inch
                                                          by inch—the inch-worm:
                                                          and I, too,
                                                          would find the good
                                                                                    in each inch of time
                                                                                                         along the branch of always . . .
