a butterfly

this swooned butterfly
a perfect angle
to attract attention
of a mating partner
or
to ward off hungry
predators.

life in a day.

this swooned butterfly
imponderable
defying gravity
defying history
alive.
alive?

eternity.

we often think that we’re alive
living our lives
but actually we are being
pinned
to
the
board.
