In this short life... emily dickinson

another poem... for Emily. who knew.


"The newly emerged insects are attracted to lights in riverside towns and villages and the local authorities deploy snow clearing vehicle to remove their rotting corpses." - https://freshwaterblog.net/…/the-mayflys-lifecycle-a-fasci…/


the mayfly: a biography


from her liquid prison she escapes, winged nymph lusting after light. a few hours of breath - then blessed before she falls, with the dance of the possessed -

wings askew, sussed out in the erotic carnival of birth, she surrenders to the whims of some passing hungry fish. is it enough? to love, to live, to give birth, to create a wish?

Has she found peace? Is her last thought a fevered dream? of being flung around by the wind, her mate - a frenzy of sound and light? Is that blinking beacon all she sought?
