Sunderby Hoppers


The people walking

on two legs

down the long, tall, skylight-covered atrium

of Sunderby Hospital,

running the length and the height of the building,

could be grasshoppers


Their voices

could be the high pitches you hear

in the fields

when you're young


The hee-hawing from the elevators

arriving at intended floor

could be sighs,

or some know-all running here and there,

nodding his / her unsolicited “aha!” understanding

on eternal repeat
