Just look at you!
All dainty and glittering
like a bubble bath.
You look familiar….
Haven’t I seen you somewhere?
Was it on the list of Insects People Like?
What they don’t know
is what an unerring hunter you are,
such a voracious aerial predator are you.
There you go….
Plotting your course like the ancient mariner
able to snatch your target in midair
focus singly on your prey amid a cloud of fluttering fraternity brothers
attack your lone target from the chaotic swarm.
Wolfishly consuming, tearing up your kill and mashing it into a single glob.
Munch, munch, munch…
a wad of snuff for your mouth.
Not much one for smelling or pheromonal flirtations.
Gilled predator, you hatch from an egg;
Hydrojet through water in search of aquatic prey.
you are ready to spread your wings and take your hunt to the sky.
