Hungry Buggers

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.

Buzzy long legged

Insect of doom, go away.

Autumn is coming.

  1. I love your haibun’s title, Sascha, and you made me chuckle with your ‘Eau du Eat Me’ – we must have the same fragrance as Rob! Oh, those Insects of doom! Autumn will scare them off.

  2. Eau du Eat Me…funny title for an unfunny problem. My aunt is a mosquito magnet and keeps alcohol in several rooms of her house for bites. I love the title of this. I am sorry!
