"Dance, Dance, While the Hive Collapses" Poem in Poetry Magazine

I am thrilled to be part of Poetry Magazine's Jan. 2016 issue on Ecojustice.

My poem "Dance, Dance, While the Hive Collapses" begins:

Oh my, oh my, I lose myself
I study atlases and cirrus paths
in search of traces of it, of you

of that thing, of that song
I keep pressing my ear to the current
of air to hear ...

I hear it and it disappears
It was all I wanted to do in this life
to sense that phantom tap

on my nerves, to allow myself
to be hit by it, attacked, aroused
until, as if someone else, I arise

I dance my part in paradise
