Valentine for a Flytrap

22 Oct

Sally Wen Mao is ready to rock your socks off over at Cave Wall. Her poem Valentine for a Flytrap is something to be reckoned with. The language sticks in your mouth and mind like tree sap. You will love this. I promise.

Here’s an excerpt:

I love how you swindle
the moths! This is why you were named
for a goddess: not Botticelli’s Venus—
not any soft waif in the Uffizi.

Enjoy!
