What’s that? Do you see that strange thing –
Over there, by the cottage window –
It looks like a firefly dancing about
and I swear he is wearing – a MASK?
I stared. He looked up and explained himself,
“I have babies! I can’t take a chance!”
Then he zoomed to the trees and I stood agape.
A firefly, a dance, and a mask?
I won’t ask.
