Fleas Interest Me So Much

Fleas interest me so much
that I let them bite me for hours.
They are perfect, ancient, Sanskrit,
machines that admit of no appeal.
They do not bite to eat,
they bite only to jump;
they are the dancers of the celestial sphere,
delicate acrobats
in the softest and most profound circus;
let them gallop on my skin,
divulge their emotions,
amuse themselves with my blood,
but someone should introduce them to me.
I want to know them closely,
I want to know what to rely on.

Really fascinating, I'll have to read something by E.A. Poe now :)
Well, crows are a menace too many a times.. Thanks for sharing Ken.. Witty and nice...
This is great. wondurfully twisted to perfection
you've got to love the insanity that leads you to identifying with Poe...you have one of the best imaginations I've come across...great work.
