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
