Hallelujah Bug

So I'm sitting

reading the paper

at my kitchen counter

about artificial


how they're working

hard to copy

the integrated circuits

of living beings.

So along comes

this little bug.

I mean he walks

straight across the column

over the word "integrated."

He is just

as big as the dot

over the "i."

It stops me


"Integrated circuits"

says I.

He's got 'em.

How else

would he know

to flee from me

as I scoop him up

and carry him

to the kitchen door

and see him

fly away.


He's got it


in his body dot.


but working,


right along.
