snow fleas and stomach bugs

these dots are moving!
but i did expect it.
the season of snow fleas has come.
they appear on warmish days 
on the snow.
insects. insects!
 i can remember the first time i saw them
how weird i thought.
 but today
home with an insect of my own,
stomach bug we say,
i went to fetch the mail
between shivery spells
and spotted them spotted all around my stoop.
so i brought out something precious
snow fleas and a gift
the wind puffed
the gift folded
bifolio and fleas?
~~~
the fleas, well the fleas
who knows what those creatures are about?
and this little stenciled piece
from bryan
i will write more later
when my very own specific bug
settles down.

Ugh... feel better! I took two vitamin c's this morning instead of c and iron by mistake, created a temporary intestinal situation. Hope you are out galavanting with the snow fleas in no time.
