Shoo Fly This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Most people realize
You are a fly that buzzes in my ear
I walk byyou daily
You never fly away
You don't really say much
You justfly by my head about 50 times a day
With your annoying buzz
Youonly get swatted at but never stepped on
If you get swatted out ofone room you go to the next
Some days I want to get out the flyswatter
So I can squash you
Then I will never have to see or hearyou again
Then I realize all the spiders you ate for me
Some daysI don't see you but the next day you come back
You are an okay insectbut you need to stay five feet away from me
You are there when no oneelse is
I always know I am not alone.
