The YellowJacket & Other Thoughts: Poetry

It's like
being frozen,
one molecule
at a time

when the
wave comes crashing
through your

And all you
can do is be
in that moment
the pain
fully strikes
It's all
much ado about
you know

All these titles
and these distinctions

do not make
the medicine
of life
go down any easier
I watch
the yellowjacket
lounging idly
in the middle
of my path
to ascension

And all I can
do is wonder
if the sting
will kill me
before I reach
the ladder...
