it must be getting warmer

the first of many
too many to count
crossed my
far from spotless
kitchen floor

should I stand on him
flatten him
in his tracks
as I did as a kid
adding a
tiny spot
to my Mum's
very spotless floor

or should I
be grown up
green aware
leaving him
to do his job
like you or me
back and forth
forth and back
from whence he came
soon to return
another tiny spot
on a far from
spotless earth

goodness me
would you believe it
the cat
just licked him up
then looked at me
for more
