    Selected Poem
Hey, Little Girl
Years ago there were butterflies
pinned beneath the smoked glass of
your irises--
wings of light and paper
stitched together with dental floss.
Lillies fell from
your torn shirt pocket and
strawberry vines
trailed your footsteps.
  You were pliable,
  no more solid than a snowflake.
Tonight your lashes are still cocoons
resting before round three.
All jelly and pink pastries
underneath rock solid resolve.
Your flowers grow from limestone now--
no more sick pansies
in over-tended beds
watered with self-doubt.
  The light doesn't shine through
  fragile wings anymore;
  You spew sunlight
  from your lips.

- Kristyn Sherman
