Bloodhoney

Press your hand against this
     cardiac flutterpulse.
If only I
could sew my skin to yours
and flow against your heart
I could show you why
the Queen kills her–
the Queen kills her
     Daughters
for their avarice.
Seal your eyes with honey
seal your ears with wax
seal your tongue with mine:
See no–
     Hear no–
          Speak no–
This is a waterfall of horrors.
