After the Battle of Kingsway, the bees

(excerpt)

by

Renée Sarojini Saklikar



“To be read as concordance, in the year of the reign 20XX

The young woman sat rigid after her beating.

No salve soft enough.

And wore glasses.


Outside, Patrol assembled nightly, and regular.

Our young girls grown up under Rentalsman,

            said Mrs. Maria. Said Abigail and Patsy:

            O moon, your sad steps


Again, the INVESTIGATOR:

they longed to feed him

            larkspur, large-leaved lupine,

            wrap him blue weed, viper’s bugloss-


            In the lab, thumb edge to screen, began to decipher.

And swipe in, left, and again, swipe.

Rhythm defined an axis.
