poem : a warning

sometimes it’s bears meandering through the streets
walking up sidewalks, onto porches
breaking the front door

sometimes lightening bugs gathering at the second floor windows
peering in, hoping for conversation

occasionally there are ants along reeds, around puddles of water,
following each other into the house, crawling along baseboards

no matter the animal
multiples of them, seemingly out of place,
mean trouble
