Under the Bridge

2019-09-24_08-28-56_405 (2)

Ensconced under the bridge in makeshift shelters of salvaged rusty metal
like rolling stones that gather no moss

No roots
Free
Careless
Avoiding responsibility

Nearby moss appears as an innovator
attached to buttresses supporting the weight of the world above

Rooted
Burdened
Sad
Accountable

The moss appears to
challenge the rust
to stay alive and avoid immobility
