Chaos Theory by Aaishah Mayet

Aaishah Mayet | Apr 10th, 2019 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

“Inconsequential” you say
Do you mean like dominoes?
“Shrunken”
Do you mean like a jack-in-the-box?
“Subliminal”
Do you mean like a haunting future realization?
Flashbacks
Reliving
In petrified palpitations

Nothing
Is Something

Even the ephemeral flutter
Of a Swallowtail’s paired canvas
Initiates air currents
“Miniscule”
Invitations to a vortex of a tempest
Relentless
Ravenous
Sanctioned by fractions
Of the laws of non-linear dynamics
Of fidelity decay

Tread softly
Touch delicately
Speak truthfully
This
Is how to treat a butterfly
