My Midsummer Bees


Image by Kelsey  Krajewski

                                 Even in the city                you’ll find flowers,


                  you tiny motor             of wings


                                        drunkenly               transporting

        heaping bundles


                            of dizzy plunder


                to scatter                    over gold-faceted hives,


        transformed into feasts


                               for tiny grubs                             brooding


             until we can touch                        the sky


                                                 and taste our own
