I am Mosquito,
The vampire of summer skies.
In Spanish, my name means
I munch on dogs
On boys and cats.
I drink their blood
And grow quite fat.
My antennae search for smells of hosts,
Humans, I prefer the most.
I am true vampire of the skies:
A little insect is my disguise!
With a nod to “The Dragonfly” in Insectlopedia by Douglas Florian for providing me with a mentor text for my poem.
I am participating in #SOL17. Thanks to the twowritingteachers
