Green Garden

Laura fulfilled her dream
And flew on the wings of a butterfly.

She took her shoes off as
They danced through the garden
As high as a tree tall and down again.

The green velvet carpet
Invited them down to bathe in the sunlight
But Laura’s human weight proved
Far too heavy for the tiny insect (obviously)
And they crashed to the ground
In a pile of blood and chipped bones.
