own good time

black beetle
Still from a Youtube recording by ‘Computer Maintenance & Upkeep’ of a black beetle with breadcrumbs,

in sunlight
a black beetle
was making its
way across the
tennis court
like a man
in a dinghy
tiredly
patiently
rowing a
night sea
the magpie
on the steel
pipe atop
the wire-netting
in a lift and
drop of wing
was
gone.
