Hide and Seek

A poem

Midjourney art generated by the author

Where do the bugs go,
when you turn on the lights?

This was a question answered
by the door lamp of a vacation rental car.

There seemed unlimited space
to hold their crispy bodies,

a sensory orgy of frantic retreat.
What must it feel like to be so arrested?
