mosquito – poemPosted: September 19, 2012
In which it is discovered a broken hand one day out of the splint is not quite healed.
when broken hand released
moves warily without the splint
refrain from excess movement
except those of kind intent
If a mosquito happens by
and alights upon your shoulder
embrace the passive stance
until the hand’s a few days older
for to strike a mighty blow
noble though the act may be
sees wary bug flit safely skyward
and puts the hurt on me.
