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.
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!
