Case Of Butterflies Brought Back To Life - Poem by Harriet James

From your case of butterflies,
Beautifully preserved butterflies,
You choose which one

And night by night
You give them breath,
You give them flight

Of ideas and words,
By blowing them out
Into the atmosphere,
Like fireflies one by one;

Each one different
But one source,
Covertly relieving you
Of your curse.
