I Think It Must Be True

I think it must be true
that when the membrane tears
and the drenched butterfly
hauling with all her strength
leaves her petrified skin behind
I think it must be true that for some time
she does not know 
if what she's done to herself
is mortal.

It is mortal, of course.

I do love this.
