Nose twister

The honeybees like your nasturtiums in the heat

Vermillion smoked hedge green vibrato

A saturated skirt of husky colour

Promising the throaty thrill of gorgeous nectar.

The food of the gods,

Disgorged, in exchange

For the buzz of

Symbiotic sex.




Tropaeolum commonly known as nasturtium (literally ‘nose-twister’ or ‘nose-tweaker’)
