Human vs. Fly
Wicked buzzing wings
Dum tap tap
The invisible glass
The painted garden green
Wild pink and white roses and tall poplar trees
Sway and swim in the liquid breeze.
One hairy black nibbin crawls at a slight angle over the scene.
Big shriek though little seems
But a whole crazed caricature
A bigmouth puppet on jangly strings.
A heat haze rises over the daylight moon.
A lamp hums on in the sun-flooded room.
Black fly, buzzing light, plastic tray tomb.

I don't believe in telling people about poems. One thing i will say, I have a northern English accent, so "tap" would near rhyme with "glass" (assonance) , though I'm not sure this matters too much.
