April Draft #24

National Sadness Week

You could identity with 
the way the calm day suffers
and the storm is in denial
like a portrait of a smile
with no face but a failed crop
makes the farmer feel helpless
so back to tending the mules
or letting the mules tend him
and maybe leaving it alone will help
and the butterfly of sadness
has flown into the net
it brought me, in its beak,
as a gift, so I could free it 
for if it didn’t fly freely
no doubt mankind
would be even more
destructive….
