Brood XIII of the 17 year cidadas emerges in Illinois this summer! It was a blast working with the cicada calls that The University of Michigan was kind enough to let me use.

I can't take what Kurt's about
open the cage and just let the bird out
nothing more here
than a rented house

so i must imagine
one day I'll be back in action
bury my body to feed the brood
turn me into cicada food

I hope I hope I hope it happens
to my precious collection of atoms
I want to know it to some degree
retain a little piece of me

whatever she gives will be enough
more perfect than i can conceive of
but maybe just to cool my mind
i'll think i can see through time
MAGICIADA ARE YOU A WINDOW TO SEE
REINCARNATION TEMPORARY WIDOWS ARE WE
CAN I MAKE YOU A METAPHOR? CAN I BE YOUR KIN?
I CAN BE PATIENT I CAN
REST AND LIVE AGAIN
or must i murmur acquiescence
to merely temporal existence
fast wave breaking on the shore
like the mermaid nothing more

i dont understand faith
but repetition is right in front of my face
wax and wane
sleep and wake

planets come around again
we all breathe out after breathing in
day to night and night to day
what doesn't mother do this way?
