The Uninvited Pest

I’m playing dead
in the living room
but Beelzebub wasn’t airborne yesterday.


I attempt to pulverise
the prince of demons
with a paperback
penned by the Nobel Prize winner
William Golding.


Flapping
membranous wings
and piercing Pearson red eyes
compound my misery;
does decaying matter really matter?
He asks me.


I can only pray
the SWAT team spray
enough insecticide to find I died not by suicide
but at the hands of a housefly
from Hell.
