This work has reached the exceptional level
Pet peeves. Number 1.


by Maria Jose Garcia

Tiny stars of light
Dance and float,
Float and dance
In the air.

'You cannot catch us
We'll slither away
We are just too little
We know how to escape.'

Minuscule dots
Whirl in a single ray.
If I close the window,
they just go away.

But it's just an illusion,
They are still with me.
All around my house,
Just doing their thing.

'I know that you hate us,
But we're here to stay.
We love dancing, prancing,
Landing, making friends.'

'Don't you be so sure,
hateful little specks.
I'm getting my duster,
I'm ready for battle.
Do say your goodbyes,
Be ready to perish,
Tiny little pests.'

'Are you talking to us?
Hear how we laugh.
Ha, ha, haaaa....
We're here to staaay...'

I've won this battle,
But they'll win the war.
They are always near
Always ready to pounce.
You know what?
I think I'll give up.
