Triolet Found in John Donne’s “The Flea”

mark but this flea

this flea is you and I

is more than we

mark but this flea


apt to kill me


since thou
purpled thy

mark but this flea

this flea is you and I

Flee or Flea Bitten

Love my house usually,

until uninvited pests descend

nest in wait to bite ankles and cats,

awake at dawn, turn vacuum on,

spray once more, last time

I hope, but likely not, once fleas

have found their spot, my rug

infested as they say, might be easier

to move away, flea bitten

or flee

~Julie A. Dickson
