My Boston Brand

Boston brand
you meet my Ticonderoga,
eating at it like soft tinder,
moving its lead to sharp point;
perhaps to increase the chance
that word will find
its place once again on paper.

The Bee

Ambitious bee, you flit by my dog's mouth,
Unaware of her hunger for you.
Carnivore that she is,
She will snap you up.
And you will sting her in the last throes of life
As it leaves you.
