Jungle animals get all the press
along with a few other show-offs
like polar bears and sharks.

I’d like to see Pixar make a movie
about banana slugs
a thriller
or a love story.

And what about the squid
those big eyes
that magic trick with the ink
the perfect escape route.

I shooed a moth out of our house tonight
and I thought later
if it had been a butterfly
how I would have held my breath
hoped it would land its bright papery body
on my cheek.

I wonder if moths know
they have lived 100 million years longer
than butterflies,

I wonder if they roll their eyes
at how easily
we are wooed.
