Butterflies aren’t born butterflies

Being young feels like hunger.
People look at you like an invasive pest.
Until about twenty five.

When you protrude from that self absorbed,
emotionally dense cocoon, and for once,
people can stand the look of you.

Some of them may even smile,
spending entire lives in denial,
they ever put pesticide on butterflies.
