Little Bugs is a sing-songy poem about where we can find little bugs and what they always seem to be doing. There is a wistful, incantation-like, aspect of wanting to be a little bug, to live your life as they. It's is best read at a little bit of a fast pace.

There are nine stanzas. The first four stanzas alternate line counts - 4 lines then 10 lines; the fifth stanza is also 10 lines, then the next four stanzas once again alternate between 4 lines then 10 lines. There is a rhyming element which plays its part in each of the stanza's to allow the sing-songy aspect to be maintained, but it partakes in many of the traditional every line or every other line or three out of four lines methodology, without a truly fixed rule for any one stanza.

While the structure of nine stanzas has been maintained as nine chapter breaks, each stanza has had its lines split-apart in order to preserve the intent (the pacing) of each line, and thus each line may be given its own page; there may be instances, however, where managing the evolution of the poem in your mind, some lines have been split into multiple pages or multiple lines of a stanza remain on the same page (making it so a chapter is not necessarily equal to the count of lines of a stanza).
