about those creatures who are the darkness,
who are the night.
Who are they? Bats.
Bats, those tiny palm-fulls of fur in flight.
Those big eyes and noses that glisten
glazed with sugar syrup.
How are those sweet things the cause
of so much fear.
Rabies is over rated.
and the blood,
well, they don’t love
so much as ripe juicy fruit and
whatever fat moths and plump bugs that can be sonarred on the summer breeze.
