Not a Fragile Flower

Images that look like one thing but are composed of something other have always intrigued me, and have often been the subject of the little doodles that I leave laying around the house.

When I wrote this poem, I enjoyed the dual imagery, and thought it went along rather well with this sweet little sketch.

More of the cactus variety, really,
Then, say, an orchid or a petunia

Comfortable in arid climates
And not too concerned with drawing blood

Happy then, to be sharp and
Somewhat succulent

- Chelsea Bell
