On Bumblebee Mountain [by Mitch Sisskind]



Barrelling down Bumblebee Mountain

We are! All of us hauling ass down
Bumblebee Mountain but most of us
Don't even know it barreling down
Bumblebee Mountain in the $19.95
U-Haul towing a 1980 Buick Skylark!
Do we even realize it? Do we have
The barest inkling of what's going on?
Racing down Bumblebee Mountain
At tremendous velocity but somehow
Oblivious of it so we imagine ourselves
Someplace else until we inevitably get
To the bottom of Bumblebee Mountain
And then we know! O yes then we know!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

from New and Selected Poems by David Lehman
