Poems for the Bee Charmer (And Other Familiar Ghosts), by Jordan Lentz
What are we made of, and what do we leave behind?
We are all amalgamations of family heirlooms, the places we go, and the ones we love. The reminders of what we leave behind – whether it be ancestors, hometowns, or relationships – shape us and those who come after. Yet, there is always one person you can’t seem to leave in the past with everything else. The person who will always answer your call, no matter how long it has been. Your bee charmer.
In Poems for the Bee Charmer (and Other Familiar Ghosts), Lentz explores the remnants of what we walk away from – and what we just can’t seem to let go of.
