To abide. To sit still. To try not to fidget. To wait.

To abide. To inspect. To squint.

To notice the foot is a plinth for the earth.

To lean back. To like the socks.

To tune into ambient sound, to compose a fugue of rustling leaves.

To gulp a glass of lukewarm water, coughing out a mouthful over your laptop.

To panic.

To swing between them, sneezing.

To swell.

To frame. To spin a yarn.

To decide they are here. To know they are always here: a mole’s eye view.
