Two – Stuck

The oblong animal
clings valiantly and seems
permanent, like
freckles or fire damage,
on the weathered,
white wall. Stillness
steals youth and youth
is almost always
obvious. Wind up
the blinds and find
the obvious buzz
and desperation
of a housefly
caught in an infinite
loop of tiny
violence. Save the
animal somehow
. Fly swatter,
empty cup, open up
the window, somehow.
Let it out while
it still looks
young.
