may day may day


I saved a bee from drowning

On the paving stones, vintage

reproduction slabs, I had

just been brushing with water.

I slid some plastic, notes on plant care

underneath and extracted it from death

I could feel its buzz, through the plastic

a gentle engine

I placed it in a rose bush and soon dry again

the little fluffy thing flew off.

The humanity of the bee, struggling, working,

fluffy with a sting, industrious, unthinking

mining flowers, beauty unaware,

the humanity of the bee

gentle engine

stung me.
