flutter of flame

flew to you
as a moth
through a tear

in the tapestry
of intuition

you painted my wings
as you would have them

colors beyond colors
you imagined
for me, and

no one else
no one else

but your storms, they came
as fire and rain

made me plain
made me plain


i lost you, forever
in the flutter
of flame



she, the butterfly

i, the moth

yearning, to be painted

as for she and i

she gave me a tribe,
babies that will live forever,
wandering the desert for love.
as for she and i,
she will fly with butterflies
to lavender fields
wishing they were violets,
and i, the lost moth
will drown
in quiet pools of dark rain.
