Tiny little wingbeats

by Angela Stevens

And; butterflies and moths,
when you're in glass houses,
nudging every simple inch,
watching transparent replicas,
amid suffocation in glass

Don't forget to flick
your antennas in the
heavenly direction


Author's Note: I think my poetry is mostly a mish-mash of ideas and images with some kind of message (mainly only known by me!) linking it all together. I know I am not good at communication, whether it is poetry or face-to-face. But this poem is as simple as it gets.

beautiful, like so many simple things are. :) i found your author's note interesting, as for me, poetry is less about communication and more about expression; i.e., i say things not because i want people to hear them, but because i need to say them. the way you described your poetry just makes it sound like poetry to me. :) you're too hard on yourself.
