“Squished Things” by Beth Cato

“Squished Things” by Beth Cato

“I don’t believe in fairies,”
said the giant
“Mosquitoes are bad enough;
can you imagine if they talked?”

he paused to fluff his beard

“And if they did exist,
I’d swat them, anyway

Them so small and me so big
maybe I already have

squished things all look alike”
