Get Lost Mosquito

get away from me, mosquito
I don't want to hear your secret

your dirty joke

you whisper too loud anyway
vulgar creature

half or more
of what you've whispered
in my ear all these years
are lies, I know

I never ever wanted to listen
so shoo, mosquito

my ear open for poetry
not for your news

who cares about or for
what you have to broadcast

from ear to ear
from year to year
