Why Are Dead Cockroaches Always Lying Supine?

Does a curling happen after death,
A wrapping around of the universe?
Or does the roach, knowing it no longer needs
To protect its soft underside,
Offer its belly up to the sky?
Or is this how the soul escapes,
Like plague dead in a fresco,
Pulled through the mouth, pale, limp and wet?
A cockroach walks on the bottomside of clouds.
