So Be It
looniverse

The possibilities of bees
 1
are not like the eager fog
 2
obscuring what flowers
 3
as it falls and rising
 4
the citizens take to wing
 5
the gesture perpetual
 6
letting the wind know we won’t
 7
be humbled by science
 8
defining dynamics of
 9
how our pilots fly
 10
 
 
Jump-suited, uniform
 11
of the explorer, cordon
 12
of gold into the black
 13
beyond the constant bar-
 14
rage rage the crazy or brave
 15
bodies locked in experi-
 16
mental cockpits bee not
 17
afraid whether they be
 18
long for the world, regal with-
 19
out bodyguard, lady or gown
 20
 
 
Stout, undoubtedly,
 21
scout redoubts able to
 22
flout the impregnable and
 23
float away a soldier self-
 24
contained exploits ahead be-
 25
comings clean more than
 26
whispers hear or feet see
 27
we dance, fluently at that
 28
 
 
All honey is theft. a
 29
sweetness as stopgap
 30
for if tragic happenings
 31
shatter the nest this
 32
sticky mess sustains
 33
till the next nexus can
 34
be built the sap as spilt
 35
will fill a new bee
 36
beginning again
 37
