What Bee Did by Julie Larios

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

Update: video may be watched on Vimeo.

An animation by Jessica Lawheed. The text of the poem is available at The Cortland Review. Julie Larios blogs at The Drift Record.

My one criticism of the animation is that it shows a honeybee entering a paper wasp nest — why not a hive box or a skep? Then again, it also depicts a bee making love to a human being, so perhaps I shouldn’t get too literal.
