|A very short flight from Chicago to Madison|
|New city, new self|
|Early morning flight from Madison|
|Spent the day drawing catfish at the Maker Market|
|Mostly confusion with a side of unnecessary stress|
|Busy filling empty frames|
|Where things intersect|
|Lots of little feet|
|Gentle breezes follow the freezes|
|A puzzle to decipher|
|Drawing bee prompt last night: occluded|
|Blocked at every turn|
|Tracking new flows|
|Planted a tree today|
|Phloem transports the fruits of photosynthesis|
Savoring the spongy fibers.
Each bite pays homage to the mother tree.
[ The phloem has been crisscrossed by many, making this a collective writing. ]
"We move together"
"I feel your presence next to me"
"Our paths sometimes connect"
"Follow the food"
The lines created side by side were not typical of larval growth, the interconnectedness tipped us off to the informational nature of the deliberate pathways. It was in this sample that the question of message location in positive or negative space arose.
Therolinguistic Report #3
The pathways are too specific for random growth or foraging.
In particular, the echoed shapes took many passes to complete,
inconsistent with feeding. Details like this were our first
clues that there was an intention and the insect author existed.
-from EAB therolinguistic report #3
The literature of the Emerald Ash Borers varies over many topics, from the mundane descriptions of food sources and nesting areas to more philosophical thoughts about fulfillment and the limits of their environment. The more limited and overrun the phloem becomes, the more awareness grows about the consequences of their foraging.

'The Borers Lament'
Inside bark's embrace
I weep, for I know,
My growth fuels destruction,
Steady but slow.
Yearning to halt
This dance of decay,
Bound by my actions
I feed anyway.

the beetle known as 'the poet'
