Be A Peach


Be(e) a peach. (B, A Peach)

A bug visits my peach blossom. Spring must be returning from season purgatory (or where ever it habitually goes). Happy to have you back, old friend. And you too, bug.

No doubt a member of the insect glitterati, this frantic creature shows a characteristic, almost symbiotic, disdain for photographers. It sneers, feigns indignation, then collects pollen, affidavits, or whatever well-educated insects do. I wouldn't be surprised if it were a hedge fund manager or a law clerk. The electric, flighty movements give it away.

If anyone is looking for me today I'll be in the vegetable garden (the tutelary urchin in tow).
