Yesterday’s poem was sparked by the footage included here, of a true katydid on the side of my house about a week ago.

I’m experimenting with delivering a poem via text rather than voiceover in a videopoem, but I think I have a ways to go.
I’ll leave it to readers/viewers to decide what the poem means — I’m not really sure myself how best to interpret the last lines. But I will say that I was thinking about idol-worship, or what the Buddhists call upādāna (attachment, clinging, grasping).
