A caterpillar
Green and plump
Inching;
Inching but going nowhere
Scrunching and folding in and out
On that little branch

No sound, no smell
Just a caterpillar
Small and fuzzy
Inching;
Inching but going nowhere
Magnified by close up view

Three minutes turns into eight hours
And caterpillar disappears
I wake somewhat puzzled
A caterpillar? Really?
My brain-complex
This simplicity-baffling

The author's comments:
My step sister sarah had a dream about a caterpillar, and I was thinking about that one day so the next night i had a dream about a caterpillar. It was really weird, and literally the simplest dream i have ever had.
