    I found a new way of seeing life and world in Jenny Kalahar's poems, this is one of the aspects that Art needs.

Best Poem of Jenny Kalahar

A Butterfly In Neon Gas

a butterfly in neon gas
flashing candied colors
breathing that which
exhaling that which
makes him light and glow and nearly dead
and exploding in slow motion
and grabbing glory
and flying higher for a moment
trapped in glass in dome in hand
yet freer than any other
a Japanese symbol of his former self
a haiku version of biography in flight
a mass of molecules unlike the night
he glows until the sun outshines him
when he'll light his own short path to heaven
