My Personal Fruit Fly

September 26, 2009

It is September and my personal fruit fly has returned

From his long vacation,

And is happily perched on the rim of my wine glass

Polity hopping off whenever I reach for a sip,

Quietly resuming his place when I set down my glass.


I can hardly resent his microscopic intrusion

Especially when I find that he and a partner have ended

Their wandering keratinous lives

And are now jointly denting the meniscus of my economy class Chardonnay.
