Smack


The first mosquito:
come here, and I will kill thee,
holy though thou art.

This short poem has been stuck in the back of my brain for a couple of years now, waiting for the right image to come along. This morning, as I sat at this keyboard, this little guy landed on my forearm. I brushed him away, to the desk, where I grabbed this quick shot...

...then dispatched him...

...holy though he was.

That'll teach them, Daniel. I think...
