The High Cost of Living

The grasshopper jumps onto an electrified fence.
Fireworks of flaming wings
Flaming legs,
Flaming head,
Flaming abdomen segments
Igniting the dry grass like
Meth-crazed bride with gown afire.
Rocks pop like champagne.
Trees come apart at the seams.
When I am with you I am the grasshopper.

From ¡Simpático Patio!

I expect an autumn 2020 release date for the new and revised 15th anniversary digital edition of ¡Simpático Patio!
