Next Up In the Ongoing Poem Series About the Summer of 2006

June 29, 2006
This morning

there was a pretty big moth
on the ladies’ room floor
Pale brown all over
with little feelers sticking off its head
Perfectly formed but perfectly still
Was it dead?
I would have thought so
or else what was it doing on the floor?
(it wasn’t all splayed out either
like they sometimes are
when they sleep or something
stuck up on walls)
but then later it was gone
Where did it go?
Did someone kick it away
or wipe it up with a wad of toilet paper?
Or did it just get up and fly off somewhere?
