Butterfly Reflection

in flash of dawn’s
reflector
..

i do my best to deflect its
harsh and recede to chrysalis n’
lick my eyelids sealed for
more torpor,

but i can’t keep these new wings
from testin’ out spread of
their true span..

a concentrate of light
sparks emergence

and next moment i’m
tearin’ down the
curtains
,

i’m the lost moth flexin’
pose in glass like
some dope
..

..ever failing

to catch my butterfly
reflection
.

    • I’ve never encountered someone with that phobia before. I must say I am intrigued. Based on your perspective, the poem likely had an additional unintended layer to it. Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to share your thoughts… cheers. 🙂
