Stink Bug

My aromatic enemy
On the edge of my tub,
you lurk, you stare, you scheme
Papery skin and brittle boned
On my desktop
you perch, you settle and you beam
watching me type away at my prose
Legs tap,
tap tapping as I go tap, tap, tapping
I guess this is how our rhythm goes
I watch you
And you watch me, my smelly, new friend
