LEPIDOPTERAN ZEPHYR
(10/17/15)


I open
the door
to retrieve
the mail
in the early
evening

I am greeted
by a great storm
of moths
disturbed
from their
front porch
encampment

as they
bat
against me
I can feel
the dust
from their wings
coating
my skin

as if
I was being
cocooned
in the slough
of their
escape

I return
indoors
awaiting reemergence
as a more capable
creature
of the night
