It’s Not Easy Being Green

This is a tomato horn worm that was found on the tomato plant of my friend Sarah White Rudisill in North Carolina. It’s actually a caterpillar that will turn into a sphinx moth.

“Know me, stranger,
For I am thy life blood
and thy nectar.
I shall wet thy lips, parched
by the winds of deprivation.
And nourished shall be thy body,
desiccated by the scorching
inferno of temperance.
Rest thy head upon my bosom,
Lose thyself in the ecstasy of
my caresses,
And know me,
For I am
