Nleimen draws cartoonsAuthor's Notes
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.
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.
