    1. There you have it! Love the blue shoes. Of course I had to watch the whole thing. You see, it was many and many a year ago, in a kingdom by the sea, that I wrote a line for a student having difficulty reading. I simply typed the word “ant” across the page. And the student took the time to stop at every ant, reading the word aloud, as if for the first time, left to right, pointing to each word, sounding each word aloud, anew. Anyway, that’s where the idea for today’s concrete poem came from. And now Dan has his red ants, too.
