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.
