Inverted flower

By Francis Scudellari

An inverted flower,
Petals pulled out-side in
Pointed rays twisted to
Color unloving knot
Stem peeled back, revealing
Fibrous innards, out-turned
Fragrant meat de-scented
Roots bottomed-up to top
A gangly hood cov'ring
Beauty once obvious
Waiting to be coaxed back
By sunlight's planted kiss
