glass


"sometimes i feel as if i am being watched"
he reads
"sitting in transparent glass,
free for all
to analyze and scrutinize.
like a butterfly in a glass jar
or a goldfish in its bowl
like a tadpole in a clear pond,
or an insect in a flask.
or maybe like a firefly
captured for its light"

'hmm.' he thinks
'sometimes.
somehow,
at times, i feel that way too.'
