The Apiarist of Life Understands The Deeper Stings

A tongue cut at the intersection of thoughts
unknown what is there residing
long stares not revealing
daggers writing out accusation

For knowing the mind of another
swim in their gray matter
understanding the oxygen of choice
Years with someone in our immediate frame
still to come up with a little or naught

Presume the outlines of wishes and bequeaths
Write a crossword in snarly cryptic clues
The long and longer tale competes

Walk a little slower
let the leaves fall

An angry fist entreats to create a better world
Expect the worst
a bogey with deadly arrows
Close up to innocence
Guilty is the charge of voices paving their say

HALT
Do not harm the collector of the bees
The apiarist of life understands the deeper stings
Teach with your honey
lock away the arsenic of bad honeycomb

What befalls the tides
The prediction is unknown
We stand in hope for understanding the cut and sting
