And I realize what I owe (Try this, baby)

sunflowerByron and Browning

and Donne and Neruda

will tickle people’s noses

when I burn

but

       let

             my

                     light

                               heavy

                                          bone

                              pollen

                    flour

         over

my

       father’s

                        sunflowers

                                   yawning

               newbright

        face

good

          morning

                           sweetheart

                     my

        plump

sweetheart

                     time

                               to

                        eat.
