ANTOA POETRY: Where Do Butterflies Go To

Where Do Butterflies Go To?

It’s been long I saw a butterfly.

Father said a caterpillar crawled

Over their homes, so we could

Build ours.

Where do butterflies go to?

I asked mother staring at a

Black and white family photo.

“Our stomach, when we fly from

One lover to another.”

I looked in the mirror and saw a butterfly.

Arms for wings ready to fly.
