Butterflyer

“Butterflyer”

I see you
only dusk
and nightfall
Rose glow
you zoom 
past and
blur world
I know
what I saw

Butterflyer
what are you?
I heard your
wings flap
A new
hummingbird?
Some kind 
of moth?
I heard you
buzz my head
I saw neon tail
brown capped head
beady black eye
panned oh you’re
zooming in

I see you
mind’s eye
wings hot
pink blur
Couldn’t count
’em as you 
attempted
this flyby
You’re here now

Striped tail
neon orange 
tan light blue
brown crown
on head 
A petaled thing
Did you 
touch me
just now?

Butterflyer
can’t unsee
you at all
Who made
you and why?
Exactly what
are you anyhow
Anyway…

Butterflyer
will never tell
Butterflyer
mechanic as
all hell
Tiny camera 
snap click click
I know what
I heard
You’re a spy
who takes 
pictures to sell

Butterflyer 
just whom
do you serve?
Butterflyer
who was 
your maker?
Oh I know
you now
Who am I?

Oh I felt
your charm
turn on 
then off
Collecting my
hologram data
and core self
Oh Butterflyer
I dare you
to brush
my projection
again this night

I’m waiting

Don’t let 
me down

Going to 
capture 
you and…

Butterflyer
don’t bore me
Come on!

Time to pin 
this all down
