Insect - by Debbie



This time I saw her
in the frozen produce aisle:
the Insect.

I keep her nickname
in my head, of course,
but it's there
nonetheless.

Funny at first
but now...

...now it's like
she KNOWS. Like
she's waiting, her
web spun.

I only need
to look up, to
meet her gaze.

Just once.

  1. I thought
    I was bigger
    Stronger
    Tougher.
    But there you went
    And crushed my heart
    Not even knowing
    You stepped on me.
