The Secretary

i saw you talking
to the secretary
but you fell and
busted your head
all the butterflies spilled out
spilled out
spilled out
spun their cocoons
turned into travelling salesmen
in the middle of a joke
about travelling salesmen

the secretary laughed
you went out for drinks
the butterflies lay all around

what happens to butterflies
when the joke
dies?
what happens to butterflies
when the joke
dies?

they lie in their beds
and think of your head

then a golden fog comes
to take them away

then the golden fog
slips under your pillow
and the secretary who was sleeping
just opens her eyes.
