Pinning specimens
the bug collector takes their wings
and legs and heads
and spreads them into shape.
Styrofoam board of insects
putrid stench of decay
horned corpses lay
glittering shells
iridescent exoskeletons.
Outnumber the humans
who place them for show
glass shadowbox of death.
Winged creatures of flight
trophies for the bug collector
live by his bedside
taxidermied on the desk.
Crawling insects
beetles, mantises, stick bugs, cicadas.
