THE FEEDING
(9/24/15)


they
come to me
mostly
at night

I awake
with extremely
itchy welts
on various
parts
of my body

I feel
dizzy

flushed

I have
never
seen them

if they're
mosquitoes

they are
mutant
mosquitoes

the areas
stay affected
for weeks

I am being
attacked
where I live

I am
their food

I have had
enough

this morning
I set
several cans
of insecticide
hissing
in the house
as I left
for the day

I hate
that I have
reached
this extreme

but I hate
them
worse

my home
is now filled
with poison

and if
I am
bitten again

I may
fill
their home
with flame
