Mosquito's Valse

10/9/2010 --

have you ever seen mosquitoes dance?
atop a young man's head, they danced around.

they whirled and twirled around in sync,
just right and in time with Tchaikovsky's Valse.

they looked so lovely that i forgot
that they have caused these itches and rash.

a surprising thing what these bloodsuckers can do.
how they can seem so lovely and graceful, too.

but still, i reach out and crush them with my hands.
and i see my own blood on my rust-stained palms.
