bumps in the air

it can take the butterfly a long time to
stretch its wings to the full length
using them as antennas to look into
the future and know how many beans to put away
if while fumbling in the pocket, the right one
is pulled out, the game of chance won
closing of ones eyes could prove risky
but where is living with out the dare
watching the parachute in reverse
as it goes back into the airplane,
the disappointment on his face
could fall in the hole if misplaced
or fuel the plane with a match
it’s all up to the elements
while you are hanging from the tree
over the sea not able to bend the knee,
for who would see that you keep bumping
into the air and landing head long into the deep
