    1,000 mosquitoes in a 9-inch by 9-inch box
    being transported from South Carolina to Connecticut
    in the undercarriage below my seat in the train
    for a study at a college on how to help cure people
    of their night terrors and other sleeping ailments

    or so the train conductor told the passengers,
    as he had to disclose the discomforting fact
    that we are en route to the northern country
    with a thousand diseased bodies, no matter how small,
    just in case of some freak accident where the bodies

    got out of the box and into us, somehow.
    I want to think about the pale green veins
    running vertically in your arms so intensely
    that when I wake up in the morning it feels
    as though my body has been through a war.
