Silverfish

only a sort of shell is left
lying askew on the tenth line
of the yellowing page.
poor old silverfish
i remember when i
shut the book on you,
just to see if
i could hear
the squelch.
i couldn't.

I like this one, Rums - a very concise word-picture. But...an ode to a silverfish, of all things? :D Oh well - better one to a silverfish than a cockroach!
