blossoming cacti

what if i just keep my foot on the pedal
with a cliff forthcoming;
one surely to cause significant harm.

i’m smiling with the thought and
the
eventual
bloody
onslaught.

i peek to my left
and notice a cacti;
in many ways
I represent the cacti:

succulent
spiney
and
blossom
brilliantly
colored
flowers,
but
only
found
in
the
wild
in
very
specific
geographic
terrains.

If you get close to me,
you’re playing with death,
or at a minimum,
a painful
experience.

however; in the off chance
your reptilian armoured
skin
slithers
into
my
environment
and
my
immediate
vicinity…
and you
unlock
my potent
antioxidant
water:

you may just get yourself a marriage proposal.
