NPM 2012 #26: Moths in the Rice Jar

Brown sickly moths
ninja their way
through what seems to be
an impenetrable rice bag
I see
baby maggots squiggling with glee
as they feast on the grains

I wish I can liken this to something
significant or profound ongoing in my life
like my problems with getting a girlfriend
or the meaning of life
or SOMETHING

Instead
I just come up with blanks
as I stare at the bugs crawling
with an irritated scowl
stained on my eyebrows.
