Butterfly WingRing Oval
Art by Norman E. Masters

dead butterfly poem

wings closed upon yourself
shadow a silent stiffness
head is cocked a querying left
legs doubly crossed
feelers slightly awry

messages... to be read...

they are other dimensions
you travel now
beyond all folded whys
all darkened parts of you a strange music
all flutterings have become
the muted music of silence

i hear a hole in the wind
