Dancing Butterflies of Expectation

When the mind pulls strings
The marionette attached to the heart
Hanging limp in the gut
Begins to twitch, to wake
Slight flicks of extremities
As the energy builds
Momentum of joyful bubbles
Excitement of possibilities
Pump into the puppet’s lazy joints
Until the jiggling doll
Lives in the jive
Of rapid motion
Expectation ecstatic
Vibrating with visions
Fluttering butterflies
Paint fabulous futures
Returning them to the mind
To be argued with the ego
To be defended
As going to be true
To hold on to the hope
Of this feeling of happiness
