Right now I very much regret living in such a lush, tree-filled neighborhood and especially along a brushy railroad embankment. The cicadas are driving me insane. And it's not even a cicada year; these are regular cicadas. They keep me up every night, all night. I wish I could punch out my eardrums. I wish I could blanket the streets and the track margins with napalm. I wish I could sleep.

They're not cicadas if they keep you up at night. Cicadas buzz all during the day.

Tried the earplugs. My ears are too small.

Something is out there buzzing in the middle of the night.
