Forever

Luscious fluorescent green caterpillar eating
away my expensive palms leaves.
Capturing its beauty in
various angles, exposures etc.,
I flick it
off and squash.
I’ll enshrine its pics
on the internet.
Like the trapped insects
in translucent gum
from the Jurassic age.

Poor, poor little catepillar. There he is just being what he is
Eating
The next thing he knows
He no longer is...

My eyes glint in wicked glee
my lips split in a slant smile
I wring my clammy palms
as I watch the slide show
wish I had shot it being squashed too...
sighhhhh

hi siggy
