moth man

     Moth Man lives on the top of a mountain and when the sun sets behind the Sierra de Nacamiento he is drawn to the lights of Albuquerque and Santa Fe because there is no Moth Woman nor even another Moth Man to aggregate with or even just talk, until the moon rises from the Sangres. No heat, but light, plentiful so Moth Man flutters wings and flies—it may be far away but the journey will at least be interesting, and if there are other Moth People, that's where they'll be.
