Strange-glow flower

Hard artwork to match with a poem, tough poem to match with an illustration. Something tells me I did well matching this couple. Enjoy.

in the Valkerie Mountains
among the strutting peacocks
I found a flower
as large as my
head
and when I reached in to smell
it

I lost an ear lobe
part of my nose
one eye
and half a pack of
cigarettes.

I came back
the next day
to hack the damned thing
down
but found it so
beautiful I
killed a
peacock
instead.

Charles Bukowski, "The flower lover".

You are right, they are a perfect match. Bukowski's famous irreverence mixed with the distorted beauty of the flower.
