23 June: Mosquito

mosquito on netting. B&W

Sometimes You Don’t See It Coming

There’s a mosquito
in this room, now it’s
by the window,
staring up at
the overcast and grey.

It’s flying away its days
and it doesn’t realise
life is short-term.
Its faint voice
buzzes at the glass.

    1. I’ll usher a fly outside, but not a mosquito. They eat me alive.

  2. At least you know the last thing that went through its mind


  3. Fly’s lives, the short cut shorter. Buzzing like a bad cow bell. Love this.
