Honey Rose

watch thumbs fumbling,
no fancy flight for

her wings and me-
a gnarl of sparks
and wires,

my stinger wedged
under hem of
moth bit

the sourest dew coats
pane’s gaze,

if our weary queen can
halt her pulsing

midst mad buzz
vibrating the

she’ll taste that
honey rose
in time.

and it’ll sip like wine, green from the vine
kissed by breeze of

a hello to life and
good morning.
