beetle

beetle

i am beetle, bumble
burrow

i sit, a leaf
she bounces me
serves water down the stem
tumble, engorged orbs

i am happy
i am bliss

clicket-clacket of a cricket
stirs me from a midnight-always
i wonder if he’s been there, always

burrow

so safe i thought were my rainbow colors
presentation of toxicity
my pincers, more
my drip-drip of poison
my watered hiss

clicket-clacket of a cricket

leaf stops moving
water dribbles off

burrow

i wait
i am ready now
come again?

nothing

nothing

nothing

i am beetle, bumble
burrow

i am lonely
