A Beautiful Disaster - Poem by Patrick Kemspke

Butterflies float
On the barrel of a gun,
The cold steel glimmers
In the rays of the sun.

They open and they close -
Those butterfly wings!
They subtly remind me
Of a young child's wink.

Staring down the barrel
Of a weather-worn shotgun.
Whose double black, empty eyes,
Die to be undone.

Suddenly commotion,
The wings are winking faster,
One metallic click,
A beautiful disaster.
