The Japanese cicada.
The newborn nymphs drop to the ground where they burrow and live for seventeen years. Slowly growing and no one knowing, underneath the construction, where they will appear. And then one summer, where it's approaching thirty degrees, suddenly, to avoid predation, they will emerge - many eaten by the birds and the bees. They're fucking all over the place in their millions and just for a day they'll fly into my face. Tsuka tsuka boshi.
