Paper wasp
Perched on a pin
Against old barn board

Through the thorax
Metal spear
Poised as in flight
Hovering over the wood
Never landing

Dust covered

while driving on Route 393 last evening, while listening to NHPR Front Porch with interview - Poems from a Hardscrabble Life

John Walters, 2004-01-08
Award-winning poet Wesley McNair was born in Newport, New Hampshire and lived most of his life in the Granite State. His latest collection, Fire, was the co-winner of the Jane Kenyon Award for Oustanding Book of Poetry. Many of the poems were inspired by his hardscrabble youth in New Hampshire.
