just like a moth.
I like moths. They’re badass, melancholy winter butterflies, bewitched by the moon (so the Stitch Witch

for my series The Onion Cutters’ Club
Doubtless I’ll be using the lepidopterans as a motif in the future.
The text of this latest page of What To Look For In Winter is inspired in part by a grainy webcam self portrait I took in which I am blending into the curtain “just like a moth“.
