dreamed I was
a butterfly at midnight

by the glittering dark
like ancient Chuang Tzu
wondering what was real

in that famous
dream Chuang Tzu became

did the butterfly also dream
she was Chuang Tzu?

if I dream
I’m a butterfly

at midnight
will I forget that once
I couldn’t fly?

am I the butterfly
or just a midnight dreamer
identity lost

in glamorous flight?
close my eyes and wonder
