Otra Vez

El ocho
didn't believe in re-incarnation

but the higher ups
or the lower downs

you prefer

preferred that el ocho
come back to life again

and so
they brought him back

in the form
of a millipede this time.

In a previous life
el ocho had been

a centipede
though he of course

was unaware of that existence---
yet he had always favored

more than
two boring feet
