you can perch on her
all you insects
that consider her
tasty or divine
and she'll not swot you

you can rest
on her
and she'll move
trying not to disturb

although of course
she could
grind you to paste
or flick you away
mortally injured

it is not her desire
it is not nor her will
to cause you harm

in this respect
she is like the others of her kind
only when they are dead
