New York City Cop

They said that I ain't too smart
I tell you from the lowest reach of my heart 
This, is what I appreciate, in art

Butterfly, garden flower pollinator
Squish you between my fingers
Half a world away, waterfalls reverse

Nature, naturalism or naturalist?
Have you ever raised an angry fist?
Or bothered with some dumb bucket list?

Butterfly, garden flower pollinator
Squish you between my fingers
Half a world away, waterfalls reverse

Save reading modern Sanskrit ’til last
Explore untying flags from every mast 
Cast away the past super fast

Butterfly, garden flower pollinator
Squish you between my fingers
Half a world away, waterfalls reverse
