Head on a Stem, 'noir' by Odilon Redon
Bring me your beautiful, empty head -
the flower from your stem.
I'll crack it like a seed egg
so you can bloom again.
Give me your petal fingers.
Lend me your pollened palm.
Give me spit and sinew;
I'll glue the future on
to the natal roots you've grafted
to an heirloom's skin.
Let me dig down to your weedy pulse
and splice my sunlight in.
