she dreamed of becoming a butterfly

2a

swaying in the morning breeze
she dreamed of becoming a butterfly
the beauty of flight from one place to another
avoiding solitude as a glowing firefly

~~

not wanting to wake up and having to slough off bees
tickling her petals wrestling her leaves
suffering butterflies calling dibs
hummingbirds poking her deep in the ribs
~~
ants crawling all over her skin squeak
and worst of all stupid cats taking a leak
