fear of flying

we see the
beauty in the
fluttering wings
of the new born
butterfly
while callously
ignoring the
trauma of the
catterpillar
being torn
apart in a
writhing cocoon
the voracious
temporary forever
in liquefaction

i am a caterpillar
crossing the
crowded highway
praying for an
errant eighteen
wheeler to prevent
my metamorphosis
