Broken Butterfly


Limping across the counter
Observed in abject enthrallment
Wings broken and twisted
The flame draws near

Sweltering, screaming, blazing heat
Tortured with cruel relish
Wings frayed and distorted
On a knife edge

Hissed intake of breath
Ragged, grief-stricken
Wings ripped off
Pierced by drawing pins

Enclosed in glass
Up n your pedestal
Wings chained around your neck
Love breaks the wings
Of a butterfly on a wheel
