31.03.22 Stream of Consciousness

Hum

It’s Bees.
Like when I walked
past the laurels.
Bees.
A roiling key of F.

Call it humming.
Buzzing.
Whatever. It builds
crescendo fright.

So would you,
if you’d stepped
in a nest of mud wasps
when you’re 8.

Electric toothbrushes
all sound like
pissed-off mud wasps.
