    the yellow jacket wasp

    grief overtook me
    opened again
    the floodgates
    i was so ashamed of

    and so in came a bee
    of what kind i didn't know
    long and thin
    bright yellow and black
    it flew around
    with barely a sound
    orbiting me
    until i had to see

    for once it stopped its flight
    and landed lightly, calmly
    on the soft spot
    of my wrist

    the salt water stopped
    the storm was calmed
    all by
    a yellow jacket wasp

    and having done its job
    it was off
