Tail to Tail


Crawl to cross;
creepy crude
critters crash ‘n
crunch on crib,
craving each other:

crane flies

All rights.

My friend Joy Acey adds to the research:
I went to Wiki and found this: Numerous other common names have been applied to the crane fly, many of them more or less regional, including mosquito hawk, mosquito eater (or skeeter eater), gallinipper, may fly (or mayfly)[2] gollywhopper and whapper.[2]
So they are the same thing.

    They’re actually crane flies, Jeanne–which gives you another “cr” word! Love the “crave each other.”
