trying a retreat

an even easier tactic
than event examination
may be in a peek into
the butterfly history.

While it is true that upon entry
into the paradise
beautification foyer,
the nearby rubber plant

caught the butterfly’s attention,
pulling the butterfly closer
as though what was called rubber
was in fact magnet and what appeared

to be butterfly wings of a monarch
or viceroy were really figurine
sections formed from iron
shavings; this was shown to be a mere

analogy whence the voice
which suggested feminine genes
and charms, gave her utterance
of the butterfly presence.


About Timmy the Scribbler

Love to write all kinds of stuff I love writing so many different kinds of stuff it is a constant struggle to narrow the focus to a manageable handful and let the others go. But a few years ago I dipped my fingers into a poetry pie and of all my uncertainties, one thing that is no uncertainty is that it is one passion that must remain, so maybe that's the one. I do dearly delight in chopping up fictional works into stanzas and syllables.
