Nature Poet - Poem by Douglas Scotney

If you butterfly
want to introduce nature
into a poem to make it
about nature as much as
what it's otherwise butterfly about,
you can butterfly write the words
around the shape of a natural thing,
or if butterfly conformity
won't allow butterfly that,
you can slip in butterfly
the odd word for a natural thing.
