that blasted halloween lady beetle

that japanese ladybug, that harlequin ladybird, that
asian lady beetle, that harmonia axyridis,
invading, infesting, multiplying & spreading all over the inside of one’s
(a lo largo de las grietas del techo, zumbando alrededor de las lámparas,
escondido en de ropa),
beautiful october is finally here & with it comes the
of these disgusting little
(peor, porque son tan adorados por las tarjetas de felicitación y dibujos animados),
who if you annoy them in the slightest,
they piss out their legs this yellow foul juice
that makes the room reek
(tinción todo a la vista)---
you get your insecticide in the attempt to kill them all off,
but they come right back the next day
(persistente y ambicioso),
moving towards the lit areas of the room,
seeking the lights
(la luz que los humanos crean por el bien de la iluminación de la ausencia de “dios”)---
you swat them, but they fly around until squashed,
and when they get squashed,
you got it,
more flatulent odor reeking
(un pedo en el viento implacable llenando la habitación)---
vaccum away these pests!
hope that their hibernation scheme isn’t successful,
because when the warmth rolls around again,
they will be out in swarms
ready to annoy you
all over again.
