the sting

An easy target
for the wasps I was

Short and noisy
and too curious

The order
had been given

Zmbp!
Zmbp!
Zmbp!

I was hit.

Three times
in the back.

Neck, left shoulder,
and right side.

The stings
all flared, glowing
red in sequence.

Communicating
like flashing
lights

connected to
a circuit

that only felt
pain.
