insects

Cruising about,
looking for prey,
the insects of night.
Do they know –
somewhere
in the darkness,
lies the incandescent death?
Waiting…
with the touch of bliss
to end their hunger!
Doubtful…
they can not know.

For those that are lost,
will never find their way.
Some moments remain,
before they hustle and fight
and throw themselves
into the ambushing pyre!
