IN     THE      DEPTHS      OF      MAY. 
                                          
                                
                                   
                                   
                                   
                                   
                                
                                          
 IMAGINE IF  YOU  WILL, A LUSH  BLUEBERRY 
 SPRUCE  FOREST, WITH  ROLLING  HILLS AND 
           KNEE-DEEP UNDERBRUSH.          
                                          
 THE GROUND IS  SOFT.  LEAVES  IN  ALL OF 
 THE  SEVEN  STAGES OF  DECOMPOSITION ARE 
   PACKED LOOSELY TOGETHER... SOMETIMES   
 THERE ARE ROCKS.  BIGGER  BOULDERS  PEEK 
             OUT OF THE HILLS.            
                                          
 THERE COULD BE, SOMEWHERE IN  THE DEPTHS 
 OF IT ALL,  A CREVICE FILLED WITH WATER. 
   BIRD CHERRIES AT THE EDGES, DIPPING    
 THEIR LONG FINGERS BENEATH THE  SURFACE. 
     WATER LILIES, MAYBE. THE WATER IS    
  YELLOW-GREEN WITH POLLEN, AND INSECTS   
      ARE SWARMING ABOVE THE SURFACE.     
                                          
        WATER STRIDERS, MOSQUITOS,        
         BACK FLIES, CRANE FLIES.         
                                          
                                
                                   
                                   
                                   
                                   
                                
                                          
 IN  THIS   CASE   WE  WOULD  USE   DEET, 
 OR DIETHYLTOLUAMIDE AS IT'S ALSO CALLED. 
                                          
 DEET  SHOULD  BE  APPLIED TO  YOUR SKIN. 
 YOU SHOULD COVER ALL SKIN THAT  IS TO BE 
 EXPOSED  TO AIR.  IT'S OK TO GET SOME IN 
 THE  EYES.  RUB UNTIL  IT  FEELS  RIGHT, 
 UNTIL THE SKIN FEELS  GOOD. LET  IT SOAK 
                    IN.                   
                                          
       YOU'VE NOW BECOME POISONOUS.
