The Moth

by Marcin Malek

Did you ever wonder
what happens
when wayward moth
passes from here
In to a fiery orb?

Maybe
the whole Universe
Is taking the pause
and nothing applies
between now and then
aside of a transparent farewell

- In fact

The only
and the last role
is to uphold
what has no name
in order to make ourselves
once more
invisible to the rest
