Deceptive Valentine

Under an unknown tree
I found a creeping cactus
with large starfish flowers
the color of carrion flesh
check them out here  
a flower than stinks
like rotting meat though
I couldn’t smell a thing
to attract flies though
it's not carnivorous
a plant on its way to becoming
an animal a flower in the shape
of a starfish creeping
over succulent stems
no spines or needles but
something unsettling about it
like the remedy for
some future disease
