Who will you tell?
Who will believe you?
Stories of swollen head, slit lip
Blood, brimstone and bonfires 
Laboriously ignited to silence

dousing me with honey
in July's sticky air
as my finger
culls...Read More

Earwig Brain Harvest
crawling biting lacerating
sniffing, chewing

tunneling through
damp, waxy tunnel

barely squeezing through
billowy elastic

syrupy warm...Read More

And found but one that I could reach.

To taste of its sweet succulence.

Then looking fat and fully fed
An earwig raised his ugly head;
And looking me straight...Read More
