Insects: A Poem

I want to
Catch your words
Like insects in summer,
Stuffing accented pronunciation
Deep into my ears
So I’ll always remember
The consonants
And vowels you made sound
Like poetry.

I want to
Catch your words
Like insects in summer,
Constructing pictures from
Conversations
So my eyes can see
Each pretty sound you vocalized
And each time eyelids kiss,
It becomes a gallery.

I want to
Catch your words
Like insects in summer,
So I can reflect upon them
Like lakes and the moon
And dispel them
Into the night,
And in fact I know –
They become stars.

Words and memories,
Holding hands,
Are always right
There.
