Letter To A Butterfly - Poem by Stephen Brian Brady

in a waiting-room
half-open door
ghosts discuss what they'd been waiting for

there's a heap of well-thumbed magazines
and inconsequential they might have been
except for this.......

Letter to a butterfly
October edition 'Butterfly Gazette'.

'how many wingbeats did it take
to cross that pyramid of light
did you put in an extra one
high-up slantwise before you'd gone

now I'm only clown-face in your mirror
soon to fade
could you reserve me a place as an extra
in the Grande Parade?
