B Street Honey

Katherine Carpenter, Lincoln Nebraska

Honey
slinks
from the tap
creeps
across the gauze
drops
of liquid gold
on long
stretching
ropes
slipping
through
the cottony
holes
to pool
on the bottom
of the bucket
as one
pure
reservoir
filling the air
with its sweet
candle-like
fragrance
while the bees
sing
their perpetual
humming
whirring
sizzling
song
of honey.
