Conversation with a Pine Beetle
Across the pseudo-marble linoleum floor
Lifting brown legs deliberately
Stretch one up
Higher than practical
Ever so slowly
Set it back down
And move on to the next.
Take your time little beetle
I'm surprised to see
You don't scurry off
Like any normal bug
Little pine beetle,
I could kill you if I'd like
But I'd rather watch your display
You're nothing like I've ever seen and
You could be my hero
By not conforming to the crowd
My friend, I think I'll call you Joe.
Please review and let me know what you think!!!
