"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Janeen Pergrin Rastall


Things Undone

An abandoned nest
rolling across the forest floor
stops upturned at her feet.
She hesitates
before stepping over it.




Tucked in the leaves on a bottom branch,
blueblack, surrounded by smaller berries,
only after popping it in your mouth
do you feel the ant
crawling out of the hollow
where it had been feasting.
