Honeybee: Poems & Short Prose

Out of stock
The newspaper boy delivers tissues instead of newspapers because the news is too sad; a batch of cookies brings together strangers at an airport; and a hopeful explanation for the disappearance of the world's bees is offered: "They are sick of the word 'busy.' They are on strike." In these poems and narratives about contemporary life, assumptions are questioned, surprises are common, and everything- and everyone-is interconnected.
