Fraction

 

 

the sun got stuck

on its way up today   I found half

 

of a butterfly’s

wing on the welcome mat       my soon-to-be

 

ex-husband says

I’m good at playing

house and we both wonder where the other fractions

 

of myself have gone

    (in this world)

butterflies of all kinds

 

are disappearing in droves                  I keep dividing

myself and news like this and questions

 

such as why do marriages

(as I’ve come to know them)

impose welcome mats and why do I

 

keep ending things

with questions            this is not good form
