Thyreus nitidulus- Lenora Cole

By Lenora Cole

striking dart of 

fluorescence, you are 

caught by light only and 

then, just barely 

 

hooked wings lie 

in patient, cleptoparasitic 

waiting, needled 

to unguarded clay 

 

mothering is best left 

to someone else 

unaware of your 

opportunistic deception 

 

you are glittering 

lightning in the ground 

unsympathetic 

to her soon-starving grub
