The Butterfly Dream

i have to cross
a field full
of butterflies
they sit on the grass
and do not fly
not even when
i walk
and step on them

i have to cross
i have no choice
fly
please fly
fly away

the nauseating sound
of breaking wings
little skeletons
crackling
it makes me sick

they die

but i have to cross
i have no choice
i move
i crush
i kill

i wish i could fly
