My New Poem Slow demise On MasticadoresUSA

(The photo is a yellow-jacket nest taken by Joni Caggiano of a Yellow Jacket Nest – read further description below)

red moon elevates levels of a blue-gray ocean with its pull
lizards eat meat from their bodies as they outgrow skin
ants move eggs deep as it freezes near the top of the earth
hoping for borrowed time and their instars to be birthed

(Due to the hot winter weather last year, the yellow-jackets never died from last year, making them a real danger to many people)  I took this photo in October after a professional came to treat the nest whose inhabitants had bitten a person in our neighborhood eight times. Stinging insects like wasp and yellow-jackets let out a pheromone when they sting, which tells other members of their hives to come and sting the individual in the same area.)
