Stopping by Butterflies, Remastered

All that lives   in black and white—
   butterflies pulsing on a boulder 
startle the multi-faceted forest’s greening

Papery wings' stark 
   slow/flip  wraps rock to oblivion
black/white   black/white  on/off   on/off
tuxedo flashing code

blooming on a graph
   telegraph alive   a live crowdsourced 
complex eye/ tiny-all-in-one heartbeat

of text  / simple / indecipherable 
writ in shiny bodies / wing-scale
overlays leaf-light

typeset through fleeting years 
prints this very 
instant
