|Oh Vain Dragonfly
and flying backwards with magnificent ease?
Do you know I’m here? I see you. I think
you are there. Is my consciousness of more value
than your flying backwards and clinging to rocks?
Do you fly away randomly, or do you consciously
perceive me as a threat even though you are wrong?
I so wish that I could interview you. How old are you?
What is your name? Are you Larry Dragonfly?
Are you happy?
I have hundreds of simple questions……..
Answer me, please.
Who eats you? Who do you eat? Is that ok with you?
I take for granted that you are not conscious, or at least not
as conscious as me. Are there degrees? Is the only expression
of my consciousness that I can think of these questions?
What plug-in could I download to receive your answers?
Did we just have our interview and I’m the one
Do you have superior conscious awareness, and am I the one
clinging to a vertical rock face? Are you confused
by my responses that don’t make any sense? Do you fly away
out of frustration rather than fear? Is your ego involved?
Such vanity O dragonfly to think you are the only species
with conscious communication ability.
