bug light

it's the glow that held my focus,
at first, 
then it choked us.
blue, mesmerizing blaze, and 
all other awareness fades.

in a broken sense really,
that my post looked willing. 
and i waited longer than 
I'd like to admit.

to see your purpose,
this became my circus.
to collect, to like,
to share faded parts of intent
and the hope that you'd share fact
and now I own the fact that I have led 
others here too.

could be that  following me
their spark ups, little impacts
can be seen at a distance
little impacts of little deaths
piling up on the ground below your bug light

there's no mistaking this mistake
your warm bait hides a
lobster trap of an invitation.
