?eating away at my psyche and sanity,?
pecking away, burrowing deep inside
and nesting atop the stem,?
digging a winter home,
?incubating hoards of blood-toxins,
?the whole brood ready to flood me
?at the drop of a pin.
????It's finally feeding time.
???I have to wonder,?
will there be anything left this time?
?I don't know.?
I can only hope.
