Lizard Orchid

The flower is disguised
as a lizard diving headfirst into
itself



The hunters have travelled
ten miles inland with a hundred
thousand invisible seeds attached
to their trousers

Sometimes, believing themselves
to be set upon by an unseen enemy
they fill their clay pots with sticky
harvest, walk further into
the forest they do not know

Unseen movement becomes
sound pulled closer, sound to
the hunter an idea in alphabet

Eyes to detail in the humus
they stumble past the goatish
odour of their prey

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog Your before and afters are AMAZING! You did a great job,i think believing themselves to be set upon via manner of an unseen enemy they fill their clay pots with sticky. I'm working at Out of Home advertising in chennai harvest, walk similarly into the wooded place they do now not recognize.Unseen motion becomes sound pulled closer,
