Origami

DSC_0014

I am a paper butterfly
drifting on fickle winds
damaged by stormy weather
I search for comfort
but there is none

I am folding inward
each crisp line contorting
and reducing
I no longer rustle
when you touch me

Rigid and small
I cannot take your script
with no purpose
I exist
but don’t live
