Small as the eye can see me
Under thumb continually shrinking
Ladybug and gentleman greeting
The grasshopper's violin at the door

Oh we're crushing all
The insect religion

Tall as a blade of grass standing
Trapeze on a tightrope shoestring
Black widow hourglass weeping
Her webs and spinning mourn

Clanging decree
Cricket up creek
The cockroach coach crashing
Crawling with crutch
Cackling crumb
The katydids jarred in a cage

Cupboard in a kitchen pantry
Dust broom and feline feasting
Lunatic moths cling to the ceiling
Of a dimming messianic bulb


from Transparent Make​-​believe, released November 8, 2003
