KINSHIP

KINSHIP

 

I have seen black beetles blindly

stagger through the dust,

limbs entangled

in some spider’s web,

drunken dragglings in the dust

mark its painful progress.

A pathetic sight,

yet I confess,

I feel a kinship, out of all size and place,

for this blind and bumbling insect

in its doomed and futile race.
