butterfly scales

Maybe aboard my steel eagle
                I may make my ends
                                    meet
              Expect drama elsewhere
                        I won’t be bringing it with me
                  Butterfly scales glisten on the
                                   last iridescent frontier
                           between reunion
                                        & insanity
           I hardly have the wherewithal
                                          to swallow
                                              this loss

Somehow,
            when the owl searches at night
            I hear your call
