Sometimes massive crews emerge out of the ground
or crawl on the roads with innocent projects.
There are no cicada writings;
these iconic insects have no "Magicicada" periodical,
no brood spokesman;
only their 9,000-acre chorus
hiding in the forest like a loud brush
or a note scribbled on the Atlantic,
and their distinct structures of 13 on 17.
