New research suggests that butterflies and
moths come with mental baggage...left
over from their lives as larvae.
He'd like to be at one with his new self
but memories sit in him like eyes.
Sometimes scent implies an unheard-of
idea and he's off
but it's just another of the given forms.
You'd think flight would be decent redress,
the power to sift himself through air
and leave each thought in it's old place,
where hard feelings also could be left.
He shrugs and the wings
quiver with great precision,
nature will have to live with what it's done,
he cannot manage even resignation
without a show of grace.
