Watch Your Step

my toe ignites -
kindled by a fire ant's

 Southern Arizona hasn't received the memo that it is autumn.
And neither have the insects. Ouch!

Worm's Sweet Sojourn

All I eat is dirt, dirt, dirt.
What I really want is a dessert.

I wiggle and crawl, crawl, crawl
over grass, flowers, and a wall.

To an orchard of apple trees, trees, trees.
Every crimson orb beckons me.

Climbing tree trunks is a chore, chore, chore
but not the tasty journey to each core.
