Copyeditor’s Dream

by July 21, 2011 0 comments

Earlier than ever this morning I wait
for copy to vacuum. It must be free of error
and the deadline is near.
But what matters today isn’t news about war,
poverty or race riots ripping the city.
What matters today is the warm quicksand
of that good woman under me again,
taking me in. Let her writhe,
let her tug at her knees, let her legs go off
in every direction. Let her take what I have
and lunge for more. I’ll be here forever,
a bee crazed by the honey
buttering her thighs.

editors note:

When it’s time to get down to business, there’s no better example than the instinctive industriousness of bees. Let’s get to buzzin’, folks! – mh
