    I read this poem over and over.
    I still can't feel like a bell
    or a moth even.

    Does that mean I am a dog?
    I know I bark a lot.
    Maybe I am Kafka's beetle.

    No I wouldnt want to be that.
    I think I'd rather stand by the window
    Pretending to be nothing. (Report) Reply
