I was ready to write
something profound and
worthwhile, but my attention
span got the best of me again.

It is bedtime and the Octoplush keeps playing its song
interspersed with my bear breathing and a stink bug
with a death wish. Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, plop
Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, plop, snore, snore, buzzzzzzzzzzzz,
plop.

I should be more kind
to stink bugs, but the night
I woke up with one in my mouth ended
my affection for these majestic
yet prehistoric creatures.

Blurry, like loch ness monster pictures, but still, just a stink bug.

  1. Interesting bug. I guess the term “stink bug” applies to different bugs in different regions. In Utah the natives refer to Box Elder bugs as stink bugs. I sure as hell wouldn’t want to wake up with one in my mouth! They’re bigger than that. I just catch them and put them outside. I’m getting Zen with bugs in my old age… Hoping for some good karma by my catch and release policy. (Though that doesn’t apply to earwigs! OMG! They were a mistake, they had to be!)

Any thoughts on the above post are appreciated! Otherwise, I think I must be living under a rock.
