BUTTERFLY
(1/14/15)


some
only remember
the dirty
destructive
caterpillar
of yesteryear

they ignore
the velvety wings
now displayed
serenely

thoughtfully

in front
of them

"you
chewed up
my garden"

they say

stuck
in the past
they are
beyond
reason

there
is no recourse
other than to
fly away

today is still
a beautiful
promise
of tomorrow
