Earthbound

A cicada was walking next to me
On the sidewalk,
Wobbling forward stiff like
An animal with
Too few joints or
Summer humidity settled between
The wings.
I watched as I walked past,
Announcing to him and the
Night sky, “You know,
You could just fly.”
He carried on walking and I
Thought it was funny how
We are what we believe
Ourselves to be.
Earthbound, or otherwise.
