Dead Bug Epiphany

by G. Jack Urso

 

i hit the insect

                with one swift

W H A C K!!!

                breaking the body apart

spilling blood and limbs

                everywhere

E V E R Y W H E R E

 

moving . . . grasping

                to the last of life

it will ever know

                the damn thing just won't die

so i give it a quick death

                having given it knowledge

of its mortality

 

whatever else i may be

                to this bug

i am god

 

i have become the eternal
