hope is the thing with feathers after all

this morning i saw
a crow flew down and
walk on the streets as
passing cars drove by;

the other day during dinner
my wife told me about this
cockroach she noticed crawling
near her plate and wouldn’t turn
away like a dog playing fetch.

and last night, i spotted
three bed bugs that stayed in
the corner of our bedroom door
unflinched by the flame and
flickering light coming out
of my zippo —

my days are getting stranger
but quite interesting witnessing
these creatures,

unlike the time spent mingling
with actual people

that live
and breathe
and talk.
