“The Mortality of Bees” Sara Wilson

Hello! This week we bring you another snippet of Issue 20–a poem by Sara Wilson!

The Mortality of Bees

Bees bumble through

blooms, the many-hued looms

spring weaves upon,

and with lowered toes

caress corollas to crack

and naked sweet nectars.


Bees reel breezes,

pet petals,

rumble the brambles

dropping berries


and drop themselves

crystallized honey-gold

into silver furred grasses


to flower even the frosts.
