Queen Anne's Lace
by June Jordan

Unseemly as a marvellous and astral renegade
now luminous and startling (rakish)
at the top of its thin/ordinary stem
the flower overpowers or outstares me
as I walk by thinking of weeds and poison 
ivy, bush and fern or runaway grass:
You (where are you, really?) never leave me
to my boredom: numb as I might like to be.
you do revive
arouse alive

a suffering.
