Butterfly Confidential

I
saw it
coming
at me
and I
could have

swerved

but I didn’t.
My tires
are new
enough, the
paint
isn’t peeling

so, I

kept going
at full
speed
and didn’t
slow down

and me
or

my windshield

splattered
with green
bug blood

if it’s blood

at all. It
lingered – wings
whipping in the
wind
and maybe

glared

at me
for a
moment
(can it do
that?) before
the sheer

velocity

ripped it
from my
sight
into the
path of
someone
moving slower

than me.
