55 - Insect


I was there when the strange winged creature landed. I wasn't sure what to think. A few curious people wandered over and we speculated. We weren't afraid of the monster, but maybe we should have been, since the odd being's presence led to an invasion of art-seekers, followed by that even more noxious species: tourists.













Note: This work of art was observed in Terlingua.

This is your last time to submit your 55-word story to Mr. Knowitall, so get on over there!

Plague indeed! Good one- select choices. Not that I have a desire to reproduce a bug in metal scrap- but I enjoy the man from Florida who did lifesize tourists and plunked them all around park benches, etc. !

The tourists really do feel like locusts sometimes. They come, they eat, they take a bunch of pictures, then it's time for the next batch.

I imagine that to the native, a tourist is the peskiest creature of all. Now artists, I can deal with.

For some reason I had a vision of insects and tourists mixing.. like some weird mixture of Miami Vice and Metamorphosis... maybe I should drink less rhum on fridays...
