Wing Crazy by Casey Diem

You rescue another bee from pavement.
I rescue you from behind the glass wall,
You take an axe to the darkness around me,
We produce light between us and
Our wings grow like crazy.

Casey Diem

Kevin describes their collaborative process:

Either myself or Debs comes up with an idea, we try to seek unusual phrases and twists,
then usually me but sometimes Debs takes charge of 'scribing'. They are usually written at a computer with the other person suggesting new phrases or twists. We try to make them ambigous so that they may be interpreted in many ways. We like to limit ourselves in a minimalist way and the poems are usually short. We tend to think on a similar wavelength so it's quite a lot of fun, even when the subject matter isn't! We have written about 15 or so together over a couple of years ( so far) and hope to write enough for a collection at some point.

A workable project, for sure! The title is wonderful and the phrases are indeed ambiguous enough to send one flying through spaces and thoughts.

around me" stunning.
