The lengths some people will go to kill butterflies… by Bogdan Dragos

Gobblers / Masticadores

Picture taken from Pinterest


I visited my girlfriend in the hospital

after her appendicitis operation.

she looked good

and her smile made me smile

“I made a friend,” she told me.

There had been another girl in the room with her

and this girl,

she was in the hospital because she sprayed a whole

can of bug repellent into a cup and drank it

“Why?” I asked.

“Oh, well,” said my girlfriend. “You wouldn’t understand.

Let’s just say she wanted to kill the butterflies

in her stomach.”

“Okay.”

  1. I love the image, and I love the way you craft a micro story in a poem. The beauty of the image and the lightness of tone contrasts with the darkness of the subject matter, making it digestible, so to speak. Sadly, metaphorical butterflies are not the only thing injured in cases like these…
