Limb darkening

for Kat


If spring had hands
they alone would dial
the rain and light.

Some know little else,
just tempt the gentle swell.
Seems as simple.

Swollen and at length
the limbs begin the great
explanation —

Those that bear most
hang lowest.

Even though the swift
hungering, even though
the subtlety of satiation
stays as a rock — 

Someone has to tell the bees 
when the beekeeper dies.
