from within the chrysalis

10 Feb 2023


I am metamorphizing

I am becoming goo

becoming goo


becomes butterfly

it is sticky muddled mushy gross

organs raw blood stinky

goo enclosed

imagines death in fresh air

caterpillar; though it comprises it,

cannot be will not be found in the goo

despite searching

scientists have always wondered how and if it hurts

this state of unbeing liquification

an undeath but also not alive . .. perhaps?

it does.

but someday

I will be a butterfly.
