Me, A Flower?

"a bee will not sting
if you stand very still,"
my mother said, "but
know," she added,
"that if you stand still
for too long, you will
always wonder what
a bee sting feels like."

so i moved.
once.

another time, a bee
was about. i sat very
still and it landed on
my shirt.  "it thinks
that you're a flower,"
my mother told me.

me, a flower?

how sad is life?
