Mutant Butterflies

butterfly

in the orchard

you found me

masquerading

a mutant butterfly

perching

on every ripe grape

yearning for a companion

 

 

 

in a wild flash

you zoomed into view

a mutant butterfly with scarlet lips

warbling a lovely tune

that drew my attention

and blew away my oracy

I trembled

as if before the oracle

then you planted

your lips on mine

and made the rivulets

that flooded my heart

and made it an orchard

where our love grows
