Boston Strong

On Boylston Street,
there are two
soul stemmed orange blooms.

Around the corner,
two planters shave wings
off of butterflies.

All around,
grey snakes and
the smell of copper.

Tainted faith will soon settle with the snakes,
as will copper scents and the night…
Some things are too heavy to linger.

But the next day,
sunrise and butterflies…
Some things use more than just wings to fly.
