Butterfly at Saint Mary’s of the Annunciation
Bristol, Indiana

Desiree Fischer, 2010

If you ask her,
She will tell you, I am a butterfly.

She floats
Through the empty church pews.

Lands on
The oak prayer bench. She is three in a blue dress.

Her wings
Show the world her bruise.

I say to her,
Touch the sky. Do not flutter unsuspecting

Into the net
Of malignancy.

Flutter on by, butterfly.
Sweet child.

Spread your cheer everywhere you small
wings fly. Flutter.
