wings toward the sun,
triumphant
for a moment
not noticing
the oncoming truck.

grasshopper never notices the magnifying glass
or pesticide gun.
dog with the mange and glaucoma
blithely to cage.
drunk blindly to rage then car
then grave.
slug to salt,
cricket to web
and you say
what I never notice is

love.
