poetry by j matthew waters


she works with fierce loyalty
gathering meals from fields
carried on her hind legs and
fed to the developing brood

inside the critical chamber
she sprinkles water in the air
fluttering her wings to regulate
a perfect temperature

having neither time nor energy
to consider her own demise
she again leaves the hive
to ensure her queen’s legacy

november two thousand twelve
