The Mosquitoes will Bite You (Bouncing as You Walk)

The Mosquitoes will Bite You (Bouncing as You Walk) – Oct. 18, 2019

The mosquitoes will bite you 
 you would say 
 when I was being too sweet 
 or more precisely 
  "tooooo sweeet" 
 arranged with ample repetition 
 an attempt to express  
 your ample happiness 
 happiness which caused you 
 to bounce as you walked 
 always on the balls of your feet 
 to always lift everyone up 
 and to always express 
  your gratitude in the form  
 of "how lucky we are" 
 wherever you and I shared  
 a moment which moved us 
 I can still hear you 
 clear as a bell 
 ringing  
 in the crisp autumn air 
 it feels thin 
 thinner than before 
 as if to suggest 
 that I try 
 passing through it would be easier 
 less atoms in my way 
 and you at the other end 
 bouncing as you walk
