Valentine's Day Message

Valentine's Day Message
Now they are building a robot Honey Bee. Research funded by the National Science Foundation - the robobee will pollinate, report emergencies, flow information toward some central authority… So this officially introduces Pentagon DARPA drone technology into the biosphere, onto the sacred bridge between nature and humans, the magical pollinators themselves.

A beekeeper will tell yo, bees are not pets. They touch a thousand flowers in a pattern that cannot be algorithmed. They waggle dance their road map against the blue sky and watcher bees on the lip of the hive translate and send out the nectar-gatherers. That dance is not and cannot be given the GPS lady's knows-where-you-want-to-go breathy voice.

Where does this love of fake life come from anyway. Especially when - it never works as well. Real bees don't obey. Is that the problem? Real bees sting. And real sex smells. The lady who really knows where I'm going has a history of sex with men and women. She has touched a thousand flowers. She flies in circles and doubles back and goes up blind alleys singing. She's maddening. She makes me laugh. She makes me cry. She's my honey.
