The Bee

To the bee that stung me 

while I labored in the garden, 

my fears, my penitence, my doubts—

these are my flaws, 

a thing of flesh and blood.

 

Passionless sting, I flee your solitary 

rational hurt, for the rose is your sister; 

the prick of love’s burn and tender delight 

hums me alive with the deepest blush,

a consummation.

 

The grace of flight, untroubled pace,

is your pious gift, while I host illusion.

Your lofty indifference is but lingering absence,

offering none of a heart’s mystery

heaped with frenzied oracle,

endowed with fulfillment. 

 

Scared with love

I break out into blossom.

Moon drifts where I walk.  

This and

sweet bright bloom on the edge

of its own invention.

 

In my loquacity I exercise

my web of lines in which to tangle,

thrilling atavistic bits of self 

flung, to root, dizzying 

vertigo where life is born.

 

—Stephen Cipot
