mayfly wake feels great pressure to have something enlightening and of substance on the page about herself, or at least something mildly entertaining. however, she is distracted by the third person and consequently unable to think of anything.
"a mayfly's wake may be subtle but pervasive
all those wings spent
for so much
to so many
yet one may not notice until it's time to do the sweeping up"
--paraphrased from an enlightened entymologist
