Wary Procession

It was the day the bees aligned
and flew in a single file
like a honey-yellow tightrope.

I walked above them without a net below
and only a plain black umbrella
to assist my balance.

All this provided an imperfect demonstration
of Einstein’s train explanation
of his relativity theory.

And it gets me across the arroyo
which rages with water
from heavy mountain rains.
