The Conditional

If you follow a butterfly's flight intently,
hold it unswerving in the palm of your eye,
trace every turn, each subtle winged gesture, 
emboss on your mind her cursive persuasion...

ultimately she will alight on you

Turquoise Piping

What I thought was one of
the black butterflies of summer
was instead a tiny bird.
