entangled bee

spent wind
wired up buzz of fires
inside a boys head

sometimes a child gets-a-bee-in-its-bonnet (states our entangled cliché). it cannot escape. entangled in early hair, more flaps cause more entangles. bee drone, driven to distraction, burrows through skull bane into entangled brain material. there it stays, partner to growth. a child suffers headaches. cause incorrectly diagnosed.

he is altered. if he fails to get his own way he orders that entangled slave bee drone to attack. it does, even from this unhealthy home base. victims become planners of dirty tricks.                    only he knows about a bee in his bonnet.

at a cliff edge
in all directions
dizzy seas
