i found a dead wasp

in the shower

as i was

washing the cut hairs

from me

after shaving my head


i picked him up

by his left wing

or his rite

if youre looking at him

and tapped him on the head

just to see if he was

still alive


but he wasnt

and i looked

into those dead bug eyes

knowing hed

beat himself to death

against the window

trying to get out


so i dropped him

at the drain

and cupped my hands

directing the water

to wash him down


and as i toweled

myself off

i walked out of the bathroom

to pour myself

another scotch

and check my email
