90 from the 90's

the moth

So I have a glass
Mystic Cliffs
(a nice Merlot that according
to the bottle goes well
with barbeque)
and I have my cigarette
and my coat on.
Just as I am about to open
the door to the outside
porch, I notice this
He looks pretty excited
about trying to get
to the
light inside the house
So I figure I'll
just give him a treat
and I turn on
the back porch light
and step outside
I watch him
bouncing around
flying all crazy like
happy as can be.

I sip my wine
smoke my cigarette
and smile

I watch this moth
have the time of his life
then my roommate comes
and the moth flies away.

you miss moments like that and you miss the point.
