The embroidered morse code are short “bytes” written in “punk” style such as: I love you. My bloody valentine. Lick me. Bite me. Kill me. Love me. My bloody me. Hiking the Sangre de Cristo mountains in New Mexico a few years ago, I encountered a wasp eating the head of a butterfly while perched on a black-eyed susan.
