ONE CRICKET KICKING
(8/14/15)


some things
elicit emotion

most
do not

to carefully
move
a dying insect
from inner hallway
to out of doors
may seem strange
to some

but it seems
right
to me

I look
down
at the still wiggling
antennae
and almost
shed
a tear

fuck
those people
anyway

I would
not
care the same
for them

shuffling
dry eyed
around
their
supine forms

holding
a more holy
being
