Monarch

I heard a story about men who give their lovers pressed butterflies as gifts.

I imagine the men walking around wheat fields

With blank books held open in their hands,

Raised like an offering to the God of

Sidelong glances and sometimes smiles,

Praying that a butterfly will emerge

And bumble lazily towards them

So they can prostrate themselves before His throne.

And as they bow their heads and bring their hands together

The books snap shut,

Turning the air and the wind into

Something that looks like love.
