MOTH

MOTH silly little things, with nighttime wings, corrupting wool clothes. audacity to land on my screen door. but this poet finds one, passed out on the floor. wants to examine its wings. where she would have thrown, this miniscule plane out, without a second thought. pressing it into pages, two flighty wings. antennas that feel, a great deal, of silly little things. 8/11/2017

Wow, a great read! Imagery is fantastic here and it flows very well. Yep, moths will eat everything that they can.

Oh this is so cool too . You are showing such cleverness describing this silly insect! They are very annoying creatures indeed and I love how you called it a miniscule plane!!

Nicely said. To set the record straight (or biologically) however, moths do not eat wool, their pupae do. Thanks for enjoying my eclipse poem. / M
