The Bearded Lady Speaks of Pearls

by Aidan Andrew Dun

I try to catch
butterflies
on another planet,
one I see when
I close my eyes
transiting imagination
sometimes
if I’m still.

In my memoirs
you will find
descriptions
of that world,
there I call
those winged-ones
pearls from the turquoise
chrysalis-ocean.
