The Bedbugs’ Defeat

Who doesn’t love a wedding?
The bridesmaids are all dressed
in various shades of bruising

Who doesn’t love the outdoors
on a June afternoon?
Someone finds a tick
and the conversation turns
to bedbug treatments

I refer back to you
struggling indefinitely
in strange hotels
I gesture wildly
still smiling, then admit
that I never got them

but who doesn’t love the story
of bedbugs defeated?
The good guy, the bad
and the battle axe falling
