the katydid

I heard him for a while

click click click

before I found him on the ceiling

green against off-white cream

long legs and body casting shadows

and that persistent sound of

click click click

as it wandered away

across a dusty plain of emptiness

and then no more sounds

no click click click

as it slipped out the window into the night
