Down Under Bug


Ditaxis biseriata is a name that describes

spikes on this non mantid’s femur and maybe

having two cutting mouthparts for predation

What would they call you if an entomologist

got a look at your body parts in a taxonomic way?

Densacapollos tortonaso or cutie pie

Dotaxis bisterlata

A Bosque House


The Russian Olive tress smell like my mother’s pantry

with all of the spices and herbs mingling together

chamisa, a bright yellow stoop for an autumn walk 10710779_767816693291305_4409032626539115896_n

on a floor covered in oriental rugs of purple sage

climbing a staircase,  lizards faster than a blink


beaches make porches to view from

muddy shoes and wet dogs in the yard to dry
