Compacts
Long pieces into short
Chunks of meaning
But I say no

Poetry is
A butterfly dancing
In open air
Like lace
So light and intricate
With little holes
For the fabric of your favorite dress to show through

The meaning
Is scattered like sand
When you walk on it
You barely feel the little pricks

But if you bend down to inspect the sand
You see it flashing gold

And the meaning hits you
Like rain
