You will meet people in your lifetime who demand to have poems written about them. It's not something they say. It's something about their hands, the shape of their mouths, the way they look walking away from you.Honeybee is an honest take on walking away and still feeling like you were walked away from. It's about cutting love loose like a kite string and praying the wind has the decency to carry it away from you. It's an ode to the back and forth, the process of letting something go but not knowing where to put it down. Honeybee is putting it down. It's small town girls and plane tickets, a taste of tenderness and honey, the bandage on the bee sting. It's a reminder that you are not defined by the people you walk away from or the people who walk away from you.
Consider Honeybee a memoir in verse, or at the very least, a story written by one of today's most confessional poets.

    way back to the world we made for each other,

    the place where it was safe for you to want me.

    Coming Home
    It took me too long

    to realize it was


    romantic(, tender, or healthy)

    to love someone else

    more than I loved

    You are the first thing in a long time

    that has made me want to write

    poetry again.
