The Cicadas Are Coming

Here, on the East Coast, we sit in wait for:

The cicadas are coming;
after seventeen years’
from earth to sky & back.

small bug engineers;
producing big noise
recycling years of waiting.

The cicadas are coming–
a rain of insects,
reminding by annoying

crunching sounds of crushing shells
cycles of living
after seventeen years of wait.
