Fruit Flies Beware!

he wasn’t too sure what to make of
her fascination with YouTube videos,
enraptured by fruit fly rap songs,
women with blue nails assembling
traps made of Evian bottles,
her careful notes and comparisons,
going so far as to empty out bottles
of coke and ginger ale stored next
to her refrigerator over the last five
years, followed by hours of assembly,
waiting for this moment,
this moment when fruit flies tremble,
knowing their hours, their minutes
are numbered.
