The brilliance of the butterfly is
headed for destruction
as humans kill the things we
cannot spend or make
space for in our ample schemes
of prosperity and wealth.
I shall not write a lyric about bright
Lepidoptera or variety of
bugs, hold back from imparting gilded
Remarks on ecological conversation.
Yes I am grateful I have known and seen
rare melodic inspiration from
episodes god sends me, beloved hymns
sung by flying, floating imps.
