MOTHS
(1/16/15)


they flutter
and flock
to the bright
and beautiful
as is
their nature

they
are whores

both male
and female

seemingly
more pathetic
as they deny
the obvious fact
of their actions

in some
way
a natural order
compels them

a breeding
imperative
leftover
from their days
in the wild
driving them
to seek
the biggest

the best

now however
society
sets the standards

fame

power

money

arouse
these inflamed
genitalia
so clambering
to be tended

very few
make it through
of course

battered
and beaten
against
the elements

against
each other

so many
deplete
their powdered
wings
in their panic
to be noticed
that they eventually
fall impotently
to the ground

to be
trampled
by newcomers

to live
with the rest
of us
