the bugs: a little closer to the end everyday

Delevoy, Robert. Symbols and Symbolism pg. 137

grandma said to be sweet like a peach, but peaches rot too.

I command an intimate knowledge of the scent
of cockroach infestation, like a greasy almond.

Bingo Pajama had thoughts so sweet the bees surrounded his head.

I keep the butterflies I find dead on the road in a plastic box with my bandaids and tylenol. I feel better knowing they won’t be on that road forever.
