Catocala and Luna met secretly by evening at McDonald’s.

“Come away with me, my love.” said Catocala.

“You know I cannot.”

“Let us fly into the night and find love.”

“Would that I could,” answered Luna. “My family would never permit it. You they would kill. We are different species. Our love is forbidden.”

“Our love is bigger than the boundaries of entomologists. Let us fly away.”

“Oh, Catocala, you must accept– we have no future.”

“Then let us fly madly with the cloud of June bugs around yon streetlight, and then batter ourselves to death on the golden arches.”

    • Hi Littlewonder,

      I could pick no other name since one is a Luna moth and the other a Polyphemus. Twas the story that was hard.

      Jumping in here. Back to reading and commenting everywhere under the moon.



  1. Dear Ron,

    Yours was a tale of unrequited love told in the golden light of the arches of McDonald’s. Loved the tone and timbre of the voices and the yearning for love, so strong that it leaves them willing to die in the process.
