nothing but net

Saturday, March 24th, 2007

i just caught a glimpse of a mosquito. inside with me, here in my bed, under the mosquito net! i’m freaking out…

the Off! spray is burning my eyes. i’m holding the can, waiting for the mosquito to reappear.

now my flashlight is dying.

a mosquito has breached the perimeter. he is inside the trusted, safe zone. and i can’t find him.

i’m dripping with sweat. and every bead on my skin feels like it could be his little legs.

i think they have a lifespan of nine days. i wonder if i can stay awake and alert for nine days.

UPDATE: got him!
