Honeypot - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

The biggest jar of honey
I have ever seen

& floating inside it
like a dream

a honeycomb
remembering its summers.

Naked
you reached your hand
within &

grasping the honeycomb
like a giant golden phallus

you plunge
its dreams

within yourself

your screams
of pleasure

reflected in the bedside mirror

your open sex
all sticky & wet

dripping with
honey & summer

dripping with
honey & dreams.
