Poetry: “Mosquitoes”

My spring break trip in Venice 

 by Ivy Yu

Midnight, Venice; cool breeze, calm and soothing,

Or not. With that buzzing in my ears…

So, you’re going to attack me?


Ugh, now I’m all red…

I blame you.

Tearing my skin open for blood.

Oddly small

Even then, they

Sting you like no tomorrow.

Youth - Humor Award:  Everyone knows the annoyance of mosquitoes. We think Ivy captured it well! We mean captured it in a poem, not the actual mosquito!

Comments: Judges said, "Great Acrostic Humor!"
