The Snout

The snout of a maintainer is a blunt piece of overstatement at the insect level. What’s not to love? No wonder so many movie monsters have been buggish. It’s cold comfort, yet assuaging, to reflect that when we mammals croak the arthropods will inherit Mar-A-Leggo. Hollywood may yet prove prophetic in its nutsy way.

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day, and watch Netflix and Prime Video for entertainment. I like to read and memorize poetry.
