If a Butterfly Lands on You that Means You’re Alright

so colorful
so abstractly yet symmetrically patterned
so gracefully airborne
they just-know who's worthy and who's not

if they sense you share
the dignity of the milkweed
they will fly near
carefully set their legs upon your shoulder
and stay there for a moment

I go outdoors and hope
this will be the day of The Landing


some come so close...

could I be alright anyway?
