I tell you a tale as big as a kite,
and I fly it into your fig tree.
It rattles the wasps from their
work in your figs, their offices
of pollinating, egg-laying, death.
They are annoyed, and they sting
with the knowledge that
there’s no tale bigger than
their own. It is, they are certain,
the greatest story the sun ever told.
If it’s Tuesday p.m., check out Open Link Night at dVerse Poets.
