Pastoral

I walk out to
find asemic snail tracks
on the rubber mat at
the bottom of the
backdoor steps. Two
yellow butterflies
map the yard, one
serving as a center

whilst the other
circles round it.
Broken branches
pointing in all
directions. Is the wind
singular or plural?

Mark Young’s most recent books are Mineral Terpsichore & Ley Lines, both from gradient books of Finland, & The Chorus of the Sphinxes, from Moria Books in Chicago. A new collection, some more strange meteorites, is due out from Meritage Press, California, in early 2017.
