the microscopic egg
adheres to the leaf
constantly becoming

the crawling caterpillar
eating non-stop
shredding skin

the transitional chrysalis
suspended beneath a branch
replicating cells


the glorious butterfly
takes to the sky
a new perspective on the world

would it change back if it could
like the crying lazarus
longing for the death he was denied
