"TUTORIALS and CHENIN BLANC."
Up on a hill on the third floor, in a dust classroom,
The young professor lectures,
Her slender hands fly around her face, like small wild birds;
They scatter periods, question marks, and exclamations.
She is earnest, this young woman, and as sure as anything.
She wants our class to understand that we can never mean what we inted to,
And if we could we could fix meaning like a butterfly under glass,
We would immediatly lose it.......
The essence of a butterfly being the longing for flight,
Then the fluttering of wings, and the mussing of breezes.
Her words may not be a puzzle to the older woman across town,
Nodding over an album of curling photographs,
Nor to the little girl in cow-girl boots, dragging a teddy-bear,
And digging for worms with a pointed stick.....
Nor to the beautiful, long blonde haired woman who turns in the doorway,
On the sleepy Aintree village road,
And walks back to her young lover,
Unbuttoning her blouse,
And letting her sticky skirt drop to the floor.
