Scratching and swatting and all the little bites are swelling, I’m sure.

poetry

The mosquitoes do their very best
to cover every screaming inch and
you will never win against their numbers
and tenacity. Especially the tenacity.

It is very much a failure, but one that
is, on all counts, to be expected.
If I could stop the insects I would,
but citronella is just a brand name.
They haven’t written the superpower out yet.
