Beneath Glass

A wasp
trapped beneath a jar
is the most docile thing
crawling about on the
inside of the glass
a most piteous sight
its body moves
as if signing
a contract of truce
and you might be tempted
to lift the edge
enough for the wasp’s egress
but do not be fooled
for as domesticated
and humiliated
and repentant
as the insect beneath glass appears
you are merely watching
bottled fury
