Threadbare pants on this mosquito’s legs have chafed until no longer wearable, but they keep on being used. Part of it stems from the fact that mosquitoes don’t live very long, and an investment in new trousers would likely be wasted. An even more significant factor in play is our mosquito friend’s aversion to visiting the local insect clothing store that’s always positively crawling with boorish, clumsy and inarticulate drones.


Author: Aidan Badinger I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
