Le Papillon

I misheard a butterfly,
and thus was it born.
Colorful, it flew forth,
flowed from French
lips and French tongue,
of mixed Franco phones
it flapped around.
All color, no substance;
in reality was drowned.


I dreamed myself a lover,
in thought she existed.
A beauty made of mere
misunderstanding;
as reality dawned,
she dried up into air.
Though hoped for,
though nearly felt,
she was never there.
