Survive

Pieced By HB

You feel it in the air sometimes

lingering

in its repetition

In its own rendition

ofthe sound

made by

swarms

of bees

Buzzing

In hives

thatSurvive

the strands

of time

In time

Still stinging

and ringing

In metaphorical ears

that even after

all these years

Still

kinda

sound the same

Still

kinda

feel the same

Maybe slightly kinder

to ears

less fragile

after years

of buzzing

But the stings

never heal

No,

those ones stay

Those ones

linger

Morphing into

what we try

to be

Those ones

become

our own rendition

of the bee

that once stung

And maybe that’s all we ever really needed

maybe that’s our buzz
