Tarantula Hawk

subterranean
beneath the leaves
thriving below rot
a woolly mammoth
sits on a root,
bursting
out of its bones

arboreal
wedged in bark
paralyzed,
a chosen host
beyond stoic
less than dead,
the unsung hero
of life within

aerial
the killer looms
searching
for surrogates
to labor
their nightmares
