Labyrinth in Grand Rapids, MI. Photo taken August 5, 2020.
A large carved brick disc is plopped in the
center of a near-urban churches’ garden.
Chartre-styled snakes undulate with
purple petunias at midday to wind chimes.
Highway noises call like trapped surf in
machined shells, far from the sea.
Only ants walk with me.
