where do wildflowers grow?

in my garden, the weeds tangle,
ivy-colored veins seek to kiss and
prick hollow places:
behind my knees,
my folded envelope,
where my elbow curves,
my arm up, small fist at my throat
softcrushes the helpless well of my
throat where secrets hide- waiting
to spill between my lips or if too
painful or too weak, once again
they'll burrow deep into my soul.
