The Moth

Updated: Feb 16


Hello moth, what are you up to

Flying across the patio window pane with such design,

Such urgency?


Are you seeking the light too?

A religious light, now much dimmed

In this oh so secular world.


Or just seeking that ‘forbidden fruit’, nectar, as heavy with promise as a fermented pear.


I do not ask you so precisely.

It would be rude, and maybe unwise.


But I wish you well on your trip

Back into the night….


You brown, fluttering, mysterious dude,

He of the red, fluorescent, blood-shot eyes.
