Wasps' Nest

Standing up quickly today
I saw spinning wasps of light.
They droned like deflating balloons
to the left and right of my eyes.

I imagine that above me
there must be a nest of them
waiting for some daring child
to throw a clump of dirt
or a nearby stick
and wake their thunderous light.
