Sharing Space

Swarming on the walkway are hundreds of black bugs with red splashes on their sides. When I got here, the grown bugs were mating. Then tiny red babies were born. I've watched them these last months, the red on the babies slowly darkening to black, their bodies growing. I tiptoe through the masses, trying not to crush them.
