5-minute poem #2

butterfly, butterflying


butterfly:
my mind and me
and mind my
butterflying.

today
is the reciprocal of me:
i think of food, i eat
i think of books, i read
i read, i think of books
i eat i think of food.

a bowl of cereal and then
a glass of milk,
5 minutes warmer than
i’d like;
the New Yorker, then
Lao Tzu.

and tomorrow will be
the reciprocal of today,
butterflying.
my mind and me
and mind my

butterfly.
