Butterflies Over the Atlantic

A poem

shall we all turn over the sod
let the homeowners’ association
subsidize front yards gone wild
overgrown children in the milkweed
moonlighting their way from spring
break where butterflies
surprise us with flights over the Atlantic



Stories that matter. Emotion first and foremost.
