so much talk
poetry’s dead, poetry’s dying
I live with the dead
know the dying
so I lay a braided scarlet welcome mat
at the door and welcome
all for this marvelous seance
step right up
the plasticine academic gold butterfly
returns to the vile chopped red neon street
tranvestites ask directions and wink
as the mint girls turn their heads shake their ass
knowing full well porn has emptied their
carrot dangling coffers
the man with the gold lamé suit
terminal navy ink fingers
throwing darts at the half-grinning moon
Like a bat sleeping
the cocoon gently hangs
upon the massive red oak’s arm.
And ever so lightly—
it does shake…
dance along the little egg sack.
A wing of silent, starry blue protrudes
And now a leg-
And several more!
Beautifully blue the butterfly glistens.
Her wings flutter freely
Singing a note of life newly grown
And yet a tinge of melancholy
it seems she does echoe
of a life long ago.
To the skies she soars
In search of something more
A butterfly is born…
