insecta

what happens quietly
in front of us
cockroaches led by wasps
silent crickets
mayflies born without mouths

how do we sleep
in the middle of
mindless need?

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    nice piece of poetry, feel the jungle around me, reminds me of an insane 2 day train ride from Calcutta to Benares….ooohhh, what i would give to get these mindless hours of hiding from flying, buzzing insects back…
    Thanks for that little trip down memory lane 🙂

    Have a bug free day..
