.

It is that sound they make

at night in the dark
near your ear.
.
You almost bang
your brains out trying
to kill them. I know
you know that sound,
that whined buzz
that is searching
ardently for bare skin
and blood.
.
Come closer. I will
hold very still. Then,
comes the big wham
before the coveted
resumption of silence.
