Human Nature


glasswing butterfly


            I mark its spirals

            and seek a certain release

            in its weightlessness


cellophane in silky flight


            my son does not see

            his cruel potential

            it is just a bug

west wind in summer


            he tears wings with glee

            my hands tremble in a breeze

            too cold for August
