Desert (with two s’s)
A zine about the co-reliance of two desert beings.
Our moths arrive
They meet in the yucca blossom.
The female injects her fertilized egg into the pistol of the
yucca blossom and fertilizes the flower.
She flies away, while her young develop in the fruit of the yucca.
The larva eats the fruit and when old enough, emerges.
It burrows underground, creates a cuccoon, and develops into a moth.
