the bumblebee backache
it’s the sacrum and the erector spinae muscle
can the sky deliver relief?
can a bee find pollen?
sweet summer of yellow flower sun
cold – hot, cold – hot …what will it be?
my nerves can’t
submit to the sounds
ice baby blue buzz
the orchestra makes my hips swivel and somehow
movement gives…a hum
