The YellowJacket & Other Thoughts: Poetry

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

when the
wave comes crashing
through your
defenses

And all you
can do is be
still
in that moment
before
the pain
fully strikes
~
It's all
much ado about
nothing,
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...
