    dotsThe Secrets of Culicidaedots

    Time spent beneath the willow, observing
    tiny exoskeletal creatures in flight
    might not be the best way of aquainting
    oneself with them all, but it feels right.

    The purr of a thousand little cellophane
    wings buffeting the air in a most microscopic
    way is intoxicating to close your eyes and
    listen to, like a waterfall, microcosmic.

    Watching the lives of those too short
    to feel much in the way of pain, or suffer
    a heartbreak, or loss such as those we might
    endure, it's only logical we are their supper.

    They must crave that emotional experience
    and syphon it out of us in order to assimilate.
    Their tiny straw mouths more vessels for
    absorbing feelings than an attempt to agitate.

    Maybe blood isn't all they need to survive.

      "...like a waterfall, microcosmic." <--- possibly the greatest words I've seen in a long time. Nice job, Sheak. Only you could actually make us contemplate mosquitoes. It's a beautiful poem, and it takes me to blood vessels far away from here. Unfortunately, I still hate mosquitoes. Their bites itch like crazy! Still, you astound me with your thoughts. Bzzz bzz. ~Asiaticfox
