I wonder if they know
what it is they do
as they multiply fast,
making a home in lung,
bladder or other organ
and inviting others in.

Do they notice where
they are, as they ride
the underground flow of blood
to establish new citadels
from which to thrive.

Do they appreciate
that life for them,
whether in balance or not,
has the power to mean
death of an unknown other?

Or like all of us, do they
simply live as their nature
demands, only understanding
what is in front of them
but totally unaware
as to what do they belong?
