eyes of a predator bird on the back of a butterfly's wings, there's a god

by Ameen Wahba

burning our collective tongue on the pizza roll of desire
may god smite your golden oldies and denim vest
watching your prom date buy cigarettes from walgreens at 3am
how did this happen
this as in so many people surviving every tragedy
allowing whoever is here now
here as in earth
now and in when this enters your perception
to be what they are
maybe the tendency to stay inside
has been transferred through human dna
because i know a lot of dogs
who want to go outside
