Hi, it’s Andy Wolfhol, there wasn’t much to report at Olympics 2012 yesterday for Team GB and GG. Team GB’s men’s gymnastics team did great to get a bronze, while the Lithuanian swimming team got gold for Team GG. Meanwhile, life has been going on as normal over at fmpoetry, where Marc latham has just published the 121st of 121 Folding Mirror poems in his upcoming 242 Folding Mirror Poems and Reflections book. And without ado, here it is for you to preview:
The Caterpillar and Butterfly: Metamorphosis in the Middle
Angels love the way butterflies manifest
shimmering wings harmoniously synchronise
fluttering over aromatic magnoliophyta
free after metamorphosis in pupa.
One type of colourful creature entered
different looking one emerged
tissue, limbs and organs alter
and flightless bug has a bright future.
hanging out on a branch, having eaten leaves for brunch
A pretty pleasant crawler is the caterpillar
leading double life as larva
sometimes allying with ants
and shedding cuticles instar stage apolysis.
Originating in a leaf-glued egg
on certain species-specific host-plants
seemingly inactive and lifeless
but all the time appropriating defences.
