poem (by me): do not let this paralyze you

as you tumble through your day,
time streaming past you like fine water,
every fleeting word you say
flies away from your lips, buzzing like
a bee that draws impossible lines through the air.

your mouth is like a bee hive
full of sweet honey and fierce stings
and a hundred possibilities of things
that cannot be.
