Lexi's Moth Hunt

Alexi watched a moth
Fat and pink one night
Bumping into walls 
Confused by the light
The next day while I was cleaning
I found that moth still clinging 
To the curtains in the kitchen
Outside it been raining
a strange thing for this season
and the moths wings were dripping 
the dust had been washed from them
One day flying
With only the moon to guide him
Now shuttering stuck inside
Keeping dry
At the end of his life
