a little something

November 14, 2019

“What do you like doing best in the world, Pooh?”

“Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best-” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called. And then he thought that being with Christopher Robin was a very good thing to do, and having Piglet near was a very friendly thing to have; and so, when he had thought it all out, he said, “What I like best in the whole world is Me and Piglet going to see You, and You saying ‘What about a little something?’ and Me saying, ‘Well, I shouldn’t mind a little something, should you, Piglet,’ and it being a hummy sort of day outside, and birds singing.”

“I like that too,” said Christopher Robin, “but what I like doing best is Nothing.”

coated with rich syrup

August 25, 2019

We ate honey and nothing else for many summers. Our throats, coated with rich syrup, formed heavy lustrous words and our skin glowed like our sustenance would in sunlight. We knew no taste but sweetness – sweet tongues and sweet eyes. We lived on gold; it was only ever gold flecked honey that oozed from heaven.

Living is a little like licking honey from a bee sting.
