From Linda Bierds:

September 26, 2017

From pine tree resin, amber.
From fury, hail.
From acacia’s sap, the bond.
From raindrops, frogs.
From clay, yellow ochre.
From dust, fleas.
From the beetle, carmine.
From mud, the beetle.
From the murex snail, violet.
From sea foam, the anchovy.
From the lamb, parchment.
From the bull, the bee.
What?
From the mouth of a slaughtered bull,
cloaked in thyme and serpyllium,
the bee.

Metamorphosis: 1680
