The honeybees of a developing city

Over flowerbeds and bike racks

Making way for city plots and

Parking lots, and 40 storeys–


Tales tales

Which wake us in the

Early morning

Cracked concrete and reversal beeps.


Playgrounds removed

And replaced,

Children displaced,

Our rent rising

As old homes fall.
