A nature poem about terrorism and our culture of fear. From Bottle in the River.
Another Butterfly Effect

I came from the Garden,
"arms" bearing fruit,
and rounding a corner
found cobwebs en route.

Grief grabbed my heart
when I saw they had snagged,
a butterfly bright,
and proud, like a flag.

(But then in the wind,
I noticed a Movement,
and realized my chance
to offer improvement.

I took great offense
like one who resents,
and tore down the entangled
tress of detents!)

And smiling I watched it
fly off to the sun,
flitting and pretty,
its freedom I’d won,

and reaching to gather
my Fruit off the ground,
I noticed the spider—
starving and 'stound . . .
