Butterfly entrapped


for Jenny

I'm a Butterfly
entrapped
by an invisible shield
upon which dewdrops
crystallize.
magic powder has
disappeared
from My wings and is
replaced
by a thumb and finger print
on each wing.
three blades of grass
surround
Me
and a brown dried up twig to
convince
Me I am free but
I am
not!

- jim Young circa1971
