We are appalled by the crass irreverence of the common housefly ,who buzzes around the poet, regardless of the stature of the body it is hovering on.
Arrogant , as Ruskin rightly said. Since Ruskin , the behavior of the houseflies has not changed much .They still don’t show much respect to online poets. Flies are about the poet’s eyes sometimes ,like persistent metaphors.
Houseflies are hardly aware that they are just a few cliched images ,as they hang around poetic eyes . The houseflies are themselves cliched creatures since Ruskin’s time. They still buzz in exactly the same way and do not care about the poets, whether they are online or just bodies in a corner of the room.
