A bug’s meaning

A mean poem meaning meaningfulness during our meaningless Mean – yamean?


You didn’t ask to be here,

Which is a

completely reasonable complaint

Given the winters and parents

And elbow-climbing bugs that

Crawl like you

Eat like you

Yet do not think like you,

But now that you are


Why not instead?

There is an entire life to live

A life where you can give bugs

The ability to feel

and weep

and live knowing that among

The 9900 other bugs who were born

Alongside it in a silken sac,

Bugs that crawl like you

Eat like you,

And can think like you

If you give them the time,

They are now here

And you are there

And your elbow looks warm enough

To nestle in.
