Bee Loved by Sally James


Warm in my furry jacket

my smooth velvet coat

I buzz for you, my gold

and black, a remembrance

of honeyed perfumed days,

Heather, Roses and Sweet

Scented Night Stock.

I am drunk for you, I will

taste your lips with my

feeding tongue. I will nourish

and care for you, work and

repair your home. Then when

you flee, escape to my world.

I will follow you with the

swarm of devotion.

I will die for you.
