If there are infinite parallel universes (after Michelle Awad)

then I hope the butterflies are just as beautiful /

and the seas just as tempestuous / because I am

learning to love / my squishiness and storms /

and I want every version of me / happy / sullen /

and wicked / to find stony strength in such

fragility / I want every me to be loved for her

anger / fierce wolf howl / & fascination for

wishing wells / because there must be so many

pennies lost in space / thrown with a daydream in

mind / stuck between mirrors of time / so I hope

the butterflies and oceans are just as pretty / 

I hope they still feel like home even if I am

upside down.
