“you only put butterflies under a pin if they’re not you.”

pinned under a magnifying
glass tall and sweet with
sweaty fingers,
there is a fire

it burns in your eyes
and smoke catches in you
your hair; a nest

a story for butterflies
whose wings dance
in the spot

light on a darkened stage

you, a cornucopia

and yes,
cocooned.
