An Attentive Insect

Holub called it the club
Of Swifts, Goethes, Rimbauds,
Horatiuses, and

Death watch beetles, ha, but
Do all death watch beetles
Belong, or only some,

The chanting ones? Or just
The gifted ones? This one
Would like to know. No, no,

That was a joke. This one
Just wants to keep an eye
On death and not to join

Any poets’ club, not
Even one whose members
Count Miroslav Holub.
