FIVE HAIKU OF THE BUG WAR

By Ron Garmon

1.

Day-glo rain in May

A billion speckles fall

Screwing into Earth

 

2.

Cracks in parched dirt

Pale larvae suck nitrogen

Late summer in Hell

 

3.

Chatter and pinpricks

Bullets into carapace

Harvest no ichor

 

4.

Puckered, bloodless, bent

Piled in winter’s dry streets

Ex-human beings

 

5.

Six-limbed appetite

Squirming new race two miles thick

Greeting no next year
