Moth on a Leaf

Moth on a leaf

Resting, minding your own

You are destructive in my home

But naturally we thrive

on the same ground

You tear apart my clothing

Eat away at what keeps me warm

Leave residue on garments that

I suppose I could get more of


As long as you aren’t in my home

Naturally we can both thrive

On the same ground


So I bow my head down to the leaf

That you are resting on

knowing well that we both are fine

residing in our own place
