ohh, good question!!!

this is a decision that took me a really long time to come to… i love all bugs and didn’t want to lock myself out of ALL predatory bugs as characters. i considered doing a beastars thing, even, but it really didn’t quite work with the tone. so this is my solution – true bugs! there are lots of groups of insects, but only one of them scientifically is known as the “true bugs”, or hemiptera! this group includes cicadas, water striders, aphids, stinkbugs, and friends. i thought it’d be cute to have the “true bugs” be …. truly bugs :) so, any true bug is actually just an animal, and not a person. there’s large wild populations of true bugs all throughout the forest.

solitary wasps, spiders, mantids, and other folk usually hunt, like the cicadakiller wasp pictured here. many eusocial bugfolk like the wild west blackberry carpenter ant colony will farm their own supply of protein (and sell it to their neighbors!). and, in addition to actual meat, many bugfolk who live in cities have access to pollen bread sold by various bakers in town – like the tiger beetle here. these are chock-full of protein and are a good option if there isn’t fresh aphid lying around!

each body its own pulling along dreams

and writing calligraphy on the walls of their stuffed-up sinuses, 

it’s all the same geography until you’re walking through a marsh of

highnesses but you only want a fantasy, sent-sex-necromancy 

with the you-don’t-know-I-know the other-mind is also a

head-to-tail tale of wanting well.

it comes after a righteousness test 

and passes when you count your cows

and cash in on the vow to never trust a how
