The Cicada Storm of 2024

These Periodical Cicadas only emerge every thirteen and seventeen years, so I'm paying attention.

Tree trunks are lined with beady red eyes
A Tolkien Tale comes alive right before my eyes 
Shells drop to the ground in mounds

Invasion? They were already here long before us. But when they make it inside, make it inside my shirt, well...
