I Don’t Want To Be a Wallflower

Kindra Austin

Do you like me? Standing opaque, and out of the way—

taking up space unseen

against

the wall?

Close in on me, close enough to

smell my perfume, please.

Then you’ll see

I’m a rose garden—

pick me.

Let my sweetness pool at your feet.

Close in on me, close enough to

make me visible.

(photograph by Edward Steichen, 1930)
