The Heroine

Katie Moody | 22 October 2018

 

 

The heroine is the married butterfly

Who lands on an orchid and makes a home in the soft, pink petals

Such that with cruel and hard rainfall

They both wither and die.  

Or-

 

She is the mother betrayed by Jason

Who withers and hardens

Whose leaves are frozen

Ever-ochre

 

Rarely is she

You

Who stands an oak

Tall and proud.

Relentlessly polluted decade upon decade upon decade

Yet still purifies our air
