Award-winning poet Nick Flynn takes readers into the harmful and impossible to resist heart of the hive
I sit down in a physique & consider a physique, I picture
Burnens' arms, my words
make them flow. I say, plunge them into the hive,
& his arms pass in.-from "Blind Huber"

Blind Huber is ready the physique, love, and devotion and likewise in regards to the limits of what will be recognized and what is going to perpetually be unknown. Nick Flynn's bees and keepers-sometimes in a country of excellent pollen-drunk dizziness-view the realm from a amazing and bold perspective.
