How does the daffodil figure holding the paint brush seem to you? And the one who’s standing further back? Why are they holding hands? How are the rooted daffodils reacting to the two with legs?

William Wordsworth’s poem “I Wandered Lovely as a Cloud” describes with exquisite emotional precision how it feels to observe a field of daffodils, but fails to include the experience of the flowers themselves.

How are you different from other flowers? Do you ever feel like your body doesn’t look like other people’s bodies? From where in your person do you see the world? From where do you taste it?
