the night of the termites

I went to bed early to escape
dealing with
a foolish fancy involving at least one woodenhead and a large quantity of sand
so missed the night of the termites.
but when i awoke
the floor under windows, doors, openings
was drifted with tiny transparent wings
their bold and reckless flight
reaping similar rewards to my own.

I love that whole symbiosis - words, picture, mental image, relationship, empathy, horror ...

Lovely photo Rebecca. Nice contrast with the wood grain. I don't want to worry you, but where did the bodies go?
