Paper Bug Writer

I had noticed the bug before

While I was eating sushi in the park

Listening to the symphony of drilling machines

And building site construction

It was walking, running towards me

I tried to distract and block its path with my pen

To no avail

I admired it’s perfect camouflage

Against the wooden bench

It wasn’t interested in the miso sauce I’d spilled

After a period of observing I looked away

And wrote on my page

And when I looked back it had disappeared

I assumed it had flown away

But no!

Now two days later

Walking along the edge of my page

He looked worse for wear

I put him on the windowsill

And gave him a lettuce leaf
