Jesse Ellsbury (March 23,1982 / Washington D.C.)
Bumblebee, how do you soar
with a body so big and wings so short?
The physics are ungainly,
the angles don’t add up to one-eighty
and still you buzz about,
harmless, no doubt.
Like the birds, I wish you would just fly South
instead of bumbling into my mouth.
