Broken Box Of Spiders - Poem by Leslie Philibert

Why should I care about the past?
a broken box of spiders.

Why should I admire such a lot of paint?
rain is just a lot of water, the sun a light

that is thin in winter, the rest expected,
comfortable and lazy to the eye.

Let me climb out of a ditch next to a road,
and sniff the night air, a damaged seed.
