poems, practice, and process
by Hannah Stephenson
I have a good friend who teaches Biology, and he likes to talk about the behavior of bacteria. He sort of champions bacteria by reminding everybody how much of it/them is/are good for us. That's not much of a literary comment, but it's where the poem (happily) took me. "Flock" of germs is a fantastic concept and title. Ditto your putting germs before us, in the blue, as if they were charming birds.
Holy crap! To me, this "flock" moves in a wondrous circle, or, put another way (you know I love you very much to do this):"If I could paint the germs in the blue air /it would be your visualized belief."
I am a germophobe so I would beg you to stop : )Saying flock gives the germs intention, doesn't it?Happy Thursday Hannah!
Yes, I would beg you to stop!Hannah dear, I'm having some issues with my hands again, hence reading, not commenting, for now. xoxo
