someone once told me
bumblebees don’t sting
but why is it that
I don’t believe them?
I hear the buzzing, and
as cute as they are,
I still flip out a little
and scatter at the sight
of them, floating around,
hovering, minding
their own business…
I guess I’m the kind of person
that if you told me something
won’t hurt me, I’m not inclined
to immediately take your word
for it…like if you tell me
it’s all going to be okay, like this
shit is no big…
