Nleimen draws cartoons of insects.

Nleimen draws cartoons
in her sketchbook

of insect tourists
at a rail station:

sticklegs at a picnic table,
holding their lunchboxes

nuttery grubs on ladders,
climbing down from oak trees

half-legs hobbling on crutches,
clutching their exemption licenses.

The cartoons are funny,
but the topic is serious:

these swift travelers
cause a lot of trouble.

Author's Notes

This poem came out of the April 2013 Muse Fusion. It also fills the #15 Swift slot in the Rainbowfic Sunlight list. Sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette.
