The Flea by John Donne

This poem was one of the inspirations for this beautiful piece Naomi Wallace has created.

It is two lovers sitting together, the gentleman is romancing/coming on to the woman. He talks of a flea and attempts to convince her to let it live. The flea, having bitten both of them, represents their love and "marriage bed."
