Inefficiency in Rhododendron Pollination

A team of bees
and one butterfly
worked frantically
on purple Rhododendron.

I leaned in to watch.
They had no system:
no assigned quadrants,
they didn’t work from top down.

The bounced back and forth—
seemingly at random.
I wondered
what their supervisor would think
of such inefficiency.
