"butterflies" by @lewispbryon

i loved you with the flute
with the bass
the piano
the violin
with donny hathaway
i loved you with aquamarine
diamonds
and white gold
i loved you the way poetry’s motion approaches the end of a line
with gentle intensity
with apprehensive vulnerability
with trust tried
we were young
i gave you butterflies

*excerpt from “Black Bubblegum”
