Aphid Fury
by Alice Parris

 Black asbestos-clad  beetles    


burrow their way up though


the desert- basin. They bear witness


to mutated scorpions with body armor


awaiting their fierce day of battle.


Then, they will darken the sun.


Those distracted by aphid fury


Will be unable to evade mortal stings.
