butterfly, morning

kodak film
old black strips
in hard
top roads
patch work
snippets you think
you’ve seen
the highway rolls out
never ends
film migrates
cocoons
a digital butterfly
takes off and leaves
earth spins
at the same speed
banjo is still
plucked
movie reel ticks at a
speed
makes that sound
lights put your
image on the washed out
white
stare into the darkness
the silhouette projects us both together
old
kodak container holding
secrets
patched strips
of
tar in
the hard top…………

butterfly
