Asleep in the HoneyTupelo, a fancy dress from Wewahitchkatrolls its feet in lazy swamplandworker bees drown, dancing in high water.Miel pura, a complex of divine sugarsfull of Dios, rolling in flowers, Oh the varietals!Avocado, Basswood, Sage, Sourwood.McCormick, Cockshutt, Silver King, Herculessince the first Klondikers sowed rows of canolaexhale summer heat, faithfully turning us under.Mules sensed an early wrong with sensitive nostrilsbut galloping spillways of pearls prepossessedcarnival grain slides in World’s Fair abundance.Miserere! Have mercy, as bees cannot find flowersthe brave ones lost in cattails and downed in siltlos vivos, hivebound without their vivid meals.
