Not My Place

It struck me
that the occasional ant
that crawls by my office desk
is not a bother…
Because I don’t really regard
this space as my place.

Then again,
nowhere is really my place –
not even the place I live in,
as everywhere is shared space
with other beings seen and unseen.
I am at peace with the ant as it is with me.
Cos not my place really
So same as anywhere else
