dark poet who loves to laugh

turban-eyed

a species of mayfly male

dead within the day of birth

craves only to find female

in faint, dim light

no time to eat;  mouthless

lives only to perpetuate

his kind

searches with huge,

turban-shaped eyes

such intensity of purpose

such focused

brief existence
