Bits From My Past

Just because you see me better
than I can
doesn’t make you better
than I am.


Am I a prophet on a string?


You’re so far into the future,
your presents are all in the past.


I’m looking for squares.
You’re giving me circles.


I watched a praying mantis say
grace before eating a mosquito.


As light as they are butterflies have lifted
my spirit a time or two.
I feel I owe them something —
a shot of dandelion wine maybe.
