A lightweight object rushes
flapped its wing
in the mid-air hovering
a rocket thrusting
and fuels oxidising
But it is impractical and senseless
that its billionth energy
connected to its tender muscles be
compared to a big force of rocketry
a numerous of them maybe.
And how about this famous chaotic matter
that if all of them flapped their wings
in China or in Manila
could perhaps affect the weather
let’s say in North America
in ten or a hundred years from now
or ere the four great winds paw.
Anyway, forget about meteorology
for its skill is greater as Arachne
being an authorised weaver of its home
a genius that was why the ancient Sinos
were gathering its cylindrical cone
to make textiles of great renown.
And together with its versatility
from an early morning’s ride
prepares to gather grains for its hide –
a sound intelligence not capricious
being the monarchical queen of blossoms
parting the coloured monochromes.
A lightweight object rushes…
