Response to a Graduate Seminar Presentation

He drones like so many bees
in and out of my hive of a head,

and I wait for him to sting us
with thought, challenge, or obscenity,

but nothing comes, and so we wait.

We pray that a heavy bear will come
and, seeking honey, bat us out of
this captive audience that he drains
like a machine.
