Explanation for Those Unafflicted

It's not a hot shard of steel
inhaled through the nose
sliding down the throat
and ending in the gut--
a spark that scalds
bright and pink and instant.

It's that bee stuck between
the windowpane and screen
and why helping it escape
is required-- damn the risk
if sleep is on the agenda.
