We read Donne's poem in English class ( [link] ), and I vaguely grossed out a few people with a sketch I did of this. So I decided to do a nicer vector version.

The arm is mine.

I like the idea of a flea that's just a suction tube and a blood tank, with no apparent internal organs.

hahaha. We just read that too. That is essentially how I picture fleas :P
It was a weird poem. Our class pretty unanimously decided that the narrator was an idot. You don't woo a girl by comparing her o a bloodsucking parasite, and plus the analogy doesn't really work...it might help that our English class is almost entirely made up of girls, but still... ;)

Cool beans! Lizzy and I were talking about this poem a bit ago and she was expaining it to me because I'd never read it before, pretty funny guy. Even if he was rather horney lol. That is, before he went all religious. ^_^

Nice job. Donne's words are kind of romantic, in an icky way.
