A mosquito

By X. Z. Shao

A mosquito
trapped in the net.
She had my blood
in her belly
and droned like a helicopter,
or had grace
as a pregnant woman.
I usually allow her to go,
for she may have crucial errands
to run just as I have.
It is said only female mosquitoes
need blood
to nourish their eggs.
To perform the same function
I do far wore than she
on a daily basis
