Mosquitoe Letter

To the mosquitoes who bit me five times on my leg,

Twice on the feet,

And another two times on the wrist,

In one night.

I’m sorry I’m delicious to you,

But leave me alone.

I have enough problems with my iron levels.

And even if I didn’t,

I have horrible dexterity,

I can’t reach the damn bites to scratch!

Have you NO compassion?

Feed your hatchlings,

I get it,

Circle of life,

Humans kill other animals

To eat them,

At least I’m not dead.

I would like to point out,

I am not,

I repeat,


The only human on earth.

Can you try another of the over 7 billion flavors?

Thanks for your consideration,

Your soon-to-be-former buffet.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
