Assumption: A Red Wasp Builds a Nest


Red wasp

on the window sill

observing humans

attempting to be still


Flying around

assuming the worst

building a new nest

wanting to be the first


Gathering materials

stopping at flowers for a snack

will the humans accept me

or give me a whack


Buzzing around

the sun is hot

coolness from a window

there is water in a pot


The nest is finished

the humans come out

spotting me

one begins to shout


A blast of spray

it hits the nest

scurrying to get away

no time to rest


The assumption was wrong

humans are not my friend

searching for a new place

the journey never ends
