Memento Mori

Found in the shadowy gully between window and screen of someone else’s fourteenth story apartment, a veritable mausoleum of desiccated Diptera and at least one Hymenoptera.

I’m just finishing up my costume for tonight: I’m going as a landfill full of Halloween garbage.

      Just kidding, to comment about the amazing amount of garbage our holidays produce. So much plastic and whatever nightmare of petroleum fake webbing is made of. Once I found a patch of that stuff stretched out along a fence; it was filled with wasps that it had somehow snagged and killed. Yeah, we’ve made Halloween scary for planet earth.
