Janis Freegard

The Last Great Beehive in Willis Street

I want to bite into her beautiful tall hair that looks like
red candyfloss/ it will taste of cherries & department
store essences// the preoccupations of buyers and
travelling salespeople will melt in my mouth/ it will
be crunchy/ & delicious
each day it is gravity-defyingly higher/ constructed
from thin strands of toffee// standing behind her,
reaching up, I feel I could infiltrate its sweet, brittle
boundaries/ & release her inner bees
