The butterflies in my stomach


We give our butterflies careful monikers


for example

but lets take these glittering beings

for what they truly are.

Fluttering infatuation


that can be

may be


if even only for a moment.

So don't brush these fragile cupids off

for an indicator of love

in a world like the one we live in

is precious.
