"Funeral for the Honey Bee" by Jess X Chen
Scratchboard / Screenprint | 14”x19”
" I close my wings and hit
the ground. I open my wings
and my colony drops dead. I close my wings
and every flower at my funeral mourns for me.”
- excerpt from The Last Words of the Honey Bees , a poem from my recent chapbook of poetry: From The Earthworm To The Night
