What if Bugs Bunny Were Bugs Instead of a Bunny

I think of replacing myself
with bugs
fumbling over themselves
heaving

grabbing skin, grain
absorbed
or otherwise
freed like other, smaller
bugs                 you would like it if

I had been
now that I am
but I wasn’t

a spider hurls its heart
into its legs
blood hits the wall
and goes up it
like a roach                 there is no

naturally occurring
instance of me
in the leaf litter
in the rot
I descend carrots
I say what is up                         I

tape your heart
