How to Make Honey

We love all the good words
like ‘responsibility’
we ice the cake with them
on birthdays.

We dislike the bad words
that challenge beliefs
they taste like chile peppers
and we spit them out.

What we learned in school
was how to play jeopardy
memorize a lot and
hit a button.

No future no past
any longer to judge by
so it’s bye bye judgment
and so long tomorrow.

The words swarm like bees
the good and the bad
they gather the pollen
and make honey.
