Wildflowers

Wildflowers in a cage.

Has fault ever been so ambiguous?

The girls are in white dresses,

and the grass is staining their feet.

Boys in baseball caps

with machinery for hands

don’t know how to touch tenderly.

Do the wildflowers grow strong?

Do they need sticks like broken angels

to hold them upright?

Do they need proverbial whispers

to ward off the enemy?

Do they need cages to grow?

Do the cages grow, too?
