9. Over Asiatic Mountains Again (More Jets, Ducks and Bees)

Given the chance
I'll fly like a duck
Over Asiatic mountains
when my days become colder

Unlikely I'll be remembered
As a bee instead of a mosquito
and so I will flap up and away

Buzzing up on a leaf
silvered abdomen with one last motion
Antennae shake in the wind
