Explorations Into Liminality
“and there came an arm and a hand above the water and met it and caught it, and so shook it thrice and brandished it, and then vanished away the hand with the sword in the water.”

What To Tell The Bees

I have told the bees
He is gone from us;
I have given up gossamer prayers.

Carry roses, pacasandra, azaleas
The birch and dogwood to listen;
Send the song of his memories back to him.

He tends his garden
And remembers now,
Whispering his story on the wings of the bees.
