Today's poem is by Juleta Severson-Baker

Between Us

Bees in our bed;
their restless feet
where my hip fits,
your ribs bristled by
the fuzz of their backs.

harvesting the whole length
of one another's skin
and smell, the bees release
their hum and honey.

An entire season
surrenders with
the burst of our shudders,
and the bees hover,
only wings between us.
