Pick a butterfly
Say a monarch
Here's the net
Here's the ether
Here's the pin
Here's the case
Voila, Lepidoptera
Danaus plexippus

Lepidoptera depiloptera
Leave the word to Nabokovtera
(Vlad the Impaler)

I've never seen a swarm of plexippi
Fluttering by in the four-dimensional air
Weaving their chaos patterns

You can't pin
The way a butterfly moves
You can't pin
A butterfly
