Black-Eyed Susan - Poem by Velvet Thorn

Call me Rudbeckia
(Becky for short)
A black-eyed susan at night
Petals luminous
Center inscrutable in the darkness

Part of a mass effect
Individually unique
Embraced in a golden sea
Spider-threads
Carry vibrations of those distant

Fractel-like,
Petals branch out
A lattice wrought for souls.
