Let the bees make love to their honey in peace, Do not poison them, do not chase them off, or destroy them. We disturbed them first. We trampled their flowers, and burned their nests. A sting is little a price to pay for a demolished home and massive unemployment.
I tried to get the stain of her lipstick out my mind,I failed.I stayed like a cup she had drank out of,I rubbed the rim of me, with a tissue, still the mark rests,deep-crimson.
