endangeredspecies poem #1

endangeredspecies poem #1

a sweetfaced overweight woman
swims at the Y she has a magnificent
many-hued butterfly tattooed on her
opulent upper arm lately she’s been
losing losing losing pounds I am
concerned about that butterfly do you
think it might shrink back to a chrysalis?
