Girasol gigante


An early prototype of humanity.

(No, the leaves and roots wouldn't do.)


An embryonic sun floating in its womb,

Tethered to a green umbilical cord.


The inscrutable face of Aphrodite,

Bonneted, beauty-marked by honeybees.


A Cyclopean eye, lashed all around,

Astounded by you, the impossible.


A girl's breast as the seedhead of a flower

In a dream you inhabit of Magritte's.


Or strangest of all: a plant on the Earth.

A full-blown mammoth sunflower.
