bee poem

how will it feel to be a bee
maybe the queen of bees in
beehive company with million
other bees to feed me and to
be with me to mix my ego me
with insect mimikry will you be
mean to me when I’m a honey
bee or will you be with me I
mean in this reality of bee-ing
has to be a change in family
you see – my ancestors will be
the wasps are you so sure you
like my exoskeleton anatomy
my beastly sting inheritage from
grandmom killerbee & will you
touch me as a bumblebee would
it enrich your sense of curiosity
my dear your taste of instability
to live with me will it be finicky?
will you still hear me humming
on a tree? will you be free to
like this kind of mystery? if
you have screened me recently
on BBC did you experience
how it will feel to be a bee?
