“honeycomb //” by Anne Strand

if we move rapidly
inside this honeycomb

and still find ourselves
            centered

maybe we’re somehow balancing
on solid ground

while earthquake tremors
sound off beneath our feet

art recovered from tasks:
            eat, commute, laugh
we wander toward home

faces buried in cell phones
lightning bugs
comet dust

this city:
something like
            the pulse in our fingertips 

something like
the heartache poem
we can’t seem to perfect

so we write, rewrite, 
we wander toward home
