On a Patio in Central Pennsylvania

On a Patio in Central Pennsylvania Slowly patiently silently a stink bug descends toward my white-haired woman. She is undeterred by the imminent intrusion of this small spot of Nature’s alien creep. From where? Maybe Nature or the bug man at the nearby college might know. My wife knits on Slowly patiently silently making chemo caps for women seeking remission from Nature’s alien creep. From where? Maybe a (loving?) god might know.
