Have you read Alley Valkyrie’s latest piece in The Wild Hunt? I really think you should.
In the dream, I was hunched over a whirling pool of water, in a trance, staring into the abyss. Suddenly a spirit-woman appeared in the whirlpool. She opened her eyes at me, opened her mouth, and swarms of bees started to fly out. As they flew away, the spirit-woman started to rot away before my eyes, quickly turning to bones and decomposing flesh.
The evening after reading Alley’s piece I found myself drinking wine with a friend and his neighbor whom I’d just met. She was inebriated and not speaking fully with her own voice.
She showed me her bee tattoo.
She kept telling me she was going to die soon.
Her name was Melissa.
I wish I were making this up.
