Distracted (tomorrow still comes)

Distant thunder doesn’t distract
the butterfly from its flitter
nor her staring without seeing the tree

The insect uses instinct
and will be dead soon

She loves him desperately
instead of safely keeping time
and that is of no consequence
to a host of long tomorrows
