Anthem - by Carl Phillips


Trapped bee at the glass.

A window.

Instinct is different from
to understand.

Is not the same.

The window is not the light
it fills with—has
been filling with—

What the bee ascends to.

Is full with.

To ascend.
To have been foiled.
To be consistent.

Instinct making
its own equations.

The window is not, for the bee, a window.

Is a form of resistance.

not understood
because not understandable
not in terms

of reason.
A felt force.

A force entirely:

And I said Yes. That it
had been

like that. Resistance
at first, the light—And then resistance

as only one of light's more difficult

and defining features.

If all obstacles were clear like glass at least one could see the beyond. Compound, prismatic eyes are a disadvantage. See for yourself...www://cvs.anu.edu.au/andy/beye/beyehome.html
