sleep it off


i just saw a fly
with three wings
one was on the
center of its back
it stumbled along
the edge of the bench
it looked pretty drunk
he got up to fly away
but it just made little
tiny circles
and i thought
“oh little buddy,
sleep it off”
then i watched it 
land next to me
i crushed it 
with my thumb
because 
i am
extremely allergic
to insect bites
then i turned up 
the talking heads
and wondered
when zac would
come home
we can listen to “book i read, the”
over and over 
until we hate the song
