The Flea by John Donne

June 12, 2014

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."
