Once Upon a Time There Was The Fiercest Flower

I am a map etched on the underside of leaves
difficult to find
prone to shredding
adept at the concealment of thighs.
I am a midnight blue daisy
barely bending in a breeze
towards the sunlight in your mind.
How do I stand before you
and press with naked flesh and ash
toward that opening in your soul.
Because you cannot
you simply can’t
erase things that, when touched
catch fire in your hands.
