Butterfly Screams
screaming butterflygirl
The pale wings shake 
the colors almost blurring 
though not in flight 

Scream, my little butterfly 

Strange eyes and retractable tongues 
a breathing that is internal 
and at peace 

I flick my finger 
at its furry head 
I am human and own the world 
I can do this 

come on, little butterfly 
scream, keep screaming
