the cockroach

The cockroach

The cockroach sneaks n’ scales
Listens to the walls
Secrets can be ear-splitting
People are unusual
The darkness receives
Scaly sticky feet
Slinking hiding creeping
I see you you know
You twitch
Cringe at my presence
Your dark is no where near as pitch
As mine
I scatter
I zag n’ zag
As filthy
As rich
I hide
But I see you n’ hear you
I am these walls
This dirt
The scum
I am the cockroach
