I should have changed slice of cake to piece of toast, other than that, this is a perfect poem.

I was here when it was born. I remember my impatience when they had to add the hyphen due to technical issues. I've been here pretty much every week since. You'll see me in the Toast Diaspora corners of the internet, but maybe it'll finally be time for me to get my own corner going. if you want to find me at my own site it's eghtelier.com. I will miss this place.

Tell the Bees
Sarah Lindsay

Tell the bees. They require news of the house;
they must know, lest they sicken
from the gap between their ignorance and our grief.
Speak in a whisper. Tie a black swatch
to a stick and attach the stick to their hive.
From the fortress of casseroles and desserts
built in the kitchen these past few weeks
as though hunger were the enemy, remove
a slice of cake and lay it where they can
slowly draw it in, making a mournful sound.

And tell the fly that has knocked on the window all day.
Tell the redbird that rammed the glass from outside
and stands too dazed to go. Tell the grass,
though it's already guessed, and the ground clenched in furrows;
tell the water you spill on the ground,
then all the water will know.
And the last shrunken pearl of snow in its hiding place.

Tell the blighted elms, and the young oaks we plant instead.
The water bug, while it scribbles
a hundred lines that dissolve behind it.
The lichen, while it etches deeper
its single rune. The boulders, letting their fissures widen,
the pebbles, which have no more to lose,
the hills—they will be slightly smaller, as always,

when the bees fly out tomorrow to look for sweetness
and find their way
because nothing else has changed.

God, I can never breathe when I read these. They're exactly right, because they are the worst thing that ever was. Smelling salts done through satire.

I WILL MISS YOU HORRIBLE WOMEN MOST OF ALL.

Ha, no I got it, I was joking that you were lucky there weren't two deliveries.

I like that you remember this as the saturday before election day. It's very sweet, although i'm suprised his mom's flowers didn't arrive first.

We're already through several christmases, birthdays, vacation planning and moves, together, so I think that we're fine actually on pretty much any other kind of gifting situation. Pretty much nothing else in our shared lives is private/tiptoed. This is only specific to this particular window of time.
