Dreaming of Jim Bob



Hilary Lopez wants to know the name of my moths, written on a card with my name and address. Perhaps she does not mean Jim Bob, but that is the name of the Arkansas Interstate rest stop window screen moth of 2009. I was driving to Ohio from Dallas and the a/c in the Buick didn't work.
The crowd-sourced moths so far are clear, detailed, linear, black and white ink drawings and prints. They are all drop-dead gorgeous. 
The moths in my mind are darker, dusky, malevolent, shadowy, shape-shifting. They are the terrifying evil lords of the bathroom in the middle of the night in childhood.
Jim Bob's real name may be Amorpha Juglandis.

Perchance to dream of Arkansas road trip pit stop moth
