The Beast’s Desire

There was once a giant beast

With eyes black like a lonely evening

He stole a spell from the bees

The spell that used to protect dreams

 

He knew the consequences

The sky creatures would be angry

So he hid behind a tall reef

But he was found by the sea nymphs

 

Water creatures called the eagle

And so the eagle asked the raven

To listen beyond hundreds of deliriums

Until he found the beast’s whispers

 

So the eagle asked the beast

“Why did you steal from the bees?”

The beast only wanted to catch the wind

Just like bees are capable of flying

He desired the reality of travelling

Beyond this forest, beyond groups of trees

Into the tundra, until his body goes stiff
