Diamond edged talons
pierce the armored wing case
Steel rends steel
peeling back the brittle metallic husk
revealing soft, fleshly circuits

Bite here . . . snick, zzzzzzst
and here . . . snick, zzzzzzst

Sparks . . .
a twitching antenna . . .
Its over in micro-seconds

Acidic juices
gushing in the darkness
The crunching sound
that resistors make
And the current
oh yes
the current

She feels
the offspring quicken
And sets aside
a tender measure of the ravin

The litter will hatch before sunrise
they will be hungry
