translation of Chirp* while dissecting whistles

Activation of energy and chemical

reaction

sent waves of melodies

by way of anticipated winds.

Winged membranes set

to capture the very quiet song.

However thermal induced process

had taken its toll on the acoustic sails,

which showed a tendency toward abscess.
Earth radiated heat

as it slid against the teeth

of an unrehearsed yesterday.

*Vena amoris: The male cricket emits sound by a large vein located at the bottom of his wing which is covered with a row of sharp projections. Stidulation occurs as the smooth top of one wing creates friction with the bottom of the other serrated wing.
