“Hungry Buggers” was written for dVerse where we were asked to write a haibun about our experience with an insect. Click on the link to join in.
This summer I–evidently–drenched myself in the fragrance Eau du Eat Me, because the mosquitoes responded.
I used to be one of those fortunate folks who were not feasted on—feisty blood probably. I felt bad for those who had red splotches on their limbs, itching welts, and complaints. Now I am them. I have a tube of cortisone nearby and wonder how that critter found the very center of my back.

Insect of doom, go away.
Autumn is coming.
