The way the bees pull apart the Borage

pack their bags and fly off

I raise my head

and pluck the air with my lips

marvel at their weightlessness

at the way they stain the sky

when they swarm

Striking against the sun

their toy-yellow appearance

is a child’s design that floats

from the bottom up

small stars of exquisite bitterness

a wood-fire of stingers

minute eyes of splintered black ice

They have invented a secret

the persuading of waterless pollen

into Royal Jelly

while the queen dominates

with her dangerous sex

the pure poison of ecstasy

spilling a violent sweetness


From my Fourth Book-Length manuscript
