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.  



She is the mother betrayed by Jason

Who withers and hardens

Whose leaves are frozen



Rarely is she


Who stands an oak

Tall and proud.

Relentlessly polluted decade upon decade upon decade

Yet still purifies our air
