Moths to Flame

It simply isn’t true
as one, through ruptured syntax, claimed,
that every moth’s intent
when drawn unto
a siren source of light
is then to end its life.
It has no such desire
for suicide.
And if it suffers winged demise
like Icarus in coming far
too close to flame,
it surely was,
because of little strength or brain,
an accident.
