Moths

Four small moths

pressed against the outside of

the window

silver grey triangles

The light is on in the hallway

they want it

they think it is a moon

drawing them home

their fat caterpillar bellies

their naked undersides

pressed against the cold glass

they wait

as though the strength of their desire

will remove all obstacles

and bring them to the light
