fuzz

I felt a fuzz

not in my head

not like the fuzz of heat

in the summer with the hot swell

rising from the concrete

but a literal fuzz

I see him crawling

up my arm

and inching

closer to my head

years ago,

I would’ve killed him

i was fresh

i didn’t understand life

it’s no excuse

i feel it now

i place a fork near him

and watch him crawl onto it

sensing escape?

he is happy today

“okay fuzz” i say

god was kind today

One thought on “fuzz

  1. There are many ways to show kindness. Often they cost us nothing. One way is by sparing beautiful, innocent creatures that have no means of defense. You did not save merely a fuzzy worm; you saved a butterfly.
