Miss Vee finds Sphingidae moths outside in the dark, brings them inside
for sport, the longest-lasting windup toy a cat could ever dream of

eclosion: the emergence of an insect from the pupa case, or of a larva from the egg

from Noble Beast Andrew Bird's "MasterSwarm":

Thank you, Chris.

a final snippet from Alice Notley's Culture of One (Penguin, 2007):

from The Doodad Affair

                                 I say, I dreamed I gave a reading
at the checkout counter of a supermarket, by
the tabloids and gum. I couldn’t get my music across —
Or was it all they heard were ideas — how boring —
again? Popup thoughts for scholars, obliterating
the poem. Fucking timepieces for heads. My harmonica’s
unheard, the lady’s dead broke. I broke her. For, I

always create myself.

planted iris throws between rocks in pond
moved the artemesia from the herb garden to the west cactus garden
moved a plant of which we have 5 the name of which I don’t know
wide large spiky green leaves; 3”-thick woody trunk — to the pond

mystery plant

planted 14 types of herbs in veg & herb gardens
borage, chamomile, chives, cilantro, comfrey, dill, echinacea, ephedra
lemon balm, parsley, St. John’s Wort, sheep sorrel, stevia, yarrow
planted more rhubarb west of mechanical room
