Lying In Wait






The Museum pays 10 Shillings
for 2 muses
So I built this trap,
filled it with muse food


I put in some friends of minimalists
one of picassos mistresses
bukowskis fiance
a book on psychological revolution
a compilation album
from the bad boy label
a collection of poetry
filled with ambiguity


I put it all under a large enough box
propped it up with ego on one side
and insecurity on the other


I sat under the closest tree
and waited and watched
till I saw this butterfly


I made silence in my mind
sat still breathed deeply
held out my hand
waited on the butterfly to land
