Angry as robbed bees,
shapeless anxiety climbing the crest;
honey clinging to swords.
Words dripping defect and disorder;
defenseless stones beaten with a body,
slaughtered against a humming breast.
Canvas of flames stain old wax older,
candles of mold kissing liquid seeds.
death falling from foreheads.
Sleep mirrors the defeats,
the inheritance of carnations,
and guilty confessing knees.
birds feast upon winged question;
the carcass runs wild within itself;
for now, robbed freedoms bleeds,
the bees will come to feed.
