plop

16 April 2006

plop
fish flops upward
milky white eyeball rolling
in lifeless orbit
scales glistening
in the dim yellow light
reflected off the slimy tiles
see, inday, this is fresh
thwack
head comes off
gills' flaring futile
blood red and throbbing
see, inday, this is fresh
freshly dead

butterfly wings

2 April 2006

On the wings of a buttefly

Our freedom flew

So delicate, it was

A wonder to behold  and

Even colder when

We sought to unfold

The sacred mysteries it held

In the color of those wings.

So blue, and red, and free.
