a boulder poem

Paper Butterflies

lamplights shimmer in the warm dark
and plan their river wedding
silent reflections, twinkling flows
stories in their eyes
hang paintings on the bricks
of other places in the same room
today will be hard until tomorrow
open at eight -- stay
long as you're here
a not-so-different yesterday
coffee on carpet uncovers
stained heart of truth

down shimmers in the cold
to remarry broken walks
concrete reflections on tears
and tissue flowers
