Being Gregor

A knock at the door

and I'm a verminous insect

writhing on my back, as one can expect

naturally,

I am a bear in sheepskin

obligations to converse is my apple lodged in

 

And I am accustomed to the dark

just creak the door and slide it over

anything more is a hostile takeover

an act of war

I know I am not how I was once before

 

Yes, you retracted

but since you near touched

what gifts it gave to feel not as putrid

my sudden advancement was a bold act of hubris

Alas, you scampered

yet I remained

back to the darkness to be shrouded again
