Poem: Buzz in the Dark

Buzz in the Dark

by June Nash


warm flesh prickles with dread

quiet buzz around head

I lie awake in bed


creature arouses fright

as it halts to alight

on this still humid night


cannot see in the dark

as the thing makes it’s mark

arousing feelings stark


move to brush it away

squashed on arm it will lay

bloody mosquito splay
