guilty by association

poems like butterflies
i’ve captured and
pinned to the page
for display
once wild and
free floating

but now with
a degree of semi-
permanence
attached to them
thru the meaning of words
anchored in turn by
rules of sin-tacks/syntax

their still wings
still beating
(the first impulse
of creation)
in trophy cases
stuck behind glass
only to be broken
in case of
natural
emergency
