Beautiful and open and shiny. The sun high and bright, the world around them buzzing with heat. Attracted, he comes in for a closer look. Such a strange sight way out here in the middle of nothing. He hesitates. Far from home, he circles slowly above. She winks and smiles. He goes down for a drink and sighs. She laughs, closes tightly around him. Locked inside, all the air gone, he flails, feet and wings tearing away. It is warm and gooey. And okay. Life maybe wasn’t so great anyway. She swallows him gone, opens to the sun and air again. Begins to wait again.
