Poem – Flea

secreted away miniature grains
waiting waiting desire prey
giants pass detect vibrations
infrared sense heat draws
slumbering darkness eases transfer
navigate pelage choose locale
epipharynx needle punctures epidermis
pump serum gaining nourishment
spit returns passing disease
unstoppable gorging excess spills
sated finally spawn generations
upon discovery instant reaction
sclerite exoskeleton iron hard
immense legs resilin primed
spring far flee environ
become dust secreted away
