Goddamn Fleas

A week or two ago, that blasted cat, or what I am educatedly guessing to be that blasted cat, was harboring fleas or something. I got bitten on the legs and arms and was very much not happy.

The first bite has almost entirely faded. At the worst point, it was very pink and itchy and sort of swollen, and almost an inch and a half wide. It's still pink in that area, but since there is no itching or other discomfort, I think it's a bruise...
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
