Folk Festival

A butterfly flutters
one wing jammed
under the windshield wiper,
which eventually tears
and slides its body
over the safety glass
and the car roof
to become
a blotch of color
on the black asphalt
spotted by hitchhikers
traversing the shoulder
on their way
up the mountain
to consume
various nectars
and batted eyelashes.
