October 3 - In The Shadow of the Western Hills

by Jason Wardell

"He gets most healed that waits the longest."

There is a dead bee on the windowsill
that I refuse to remove.
It reminds me of stinging, being stung,
and I need to remember.


Author's Note: Quote comes from The Mountain Goats' song, "In The Shadow of the Western Hills." The title and note are now, combined, longer than the poem.
