Allergic

Allergic Jennifer Militello My mother, covered in bees. Skin swarming into the one sad twine a road seems from this distance, the fabric smokeless winter one can bend to see the question break, the zero, the stalk where it grows in the blood with the rhythm of lovers who have nothing to lose, the cracked, inexpensive wristwatch crystal of each wing working, a vast collection of spectacles. She keeps still under their dried groves, their redecorated, stemless lilies and November's velvet cords. Her lips hisses, a spill of starved machines, her adrenaline lips, her barbed wire lips, in her one eye gravel willowing, fracture, fronds of singe. The hours like twelve tarnished, interior birds. Countless spores. Intravenous. My mother is covered in bees. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Prairie Schooner University of Nebraska Press

Abstract

Jennifer Militello My mother, covered in bees. Skin swarming into the one sad twine a road seems from this distance, the fabric smokeless winter one can bend to see the question break, the zero, the stalk where it grows in the blood with the rhythm of lovers who have nothing to lose, the cracked, inexpensive wristwatch crystal of each wing working, a vast collection of spectacles. She keeps still under their dried groves, their redecorated, stemless lilies and November's velvet cords. Her lips hisses, a spill of starved machines, her adrenaline lips, her barbed wire lips, in her one eye gravel willowing, fracture, fronds of singe. The hours like twelve tarnished, interior birds. Countless spores. Intravenous. My mother is covered in bees.
