Two White Caterpillars

A great beast broke the gate of Eden
to eat my sweet
Turquoise and satin wings
tickled his fiery insides.
The beast laughed bright
stained glass and lady bugs.
My Rose garden ruined,
seared with salty embers.
Only wilted Daisies remained -
washed out by golden white ash.
Liquid marbles left scorch marks,
my small hands scared.
The lady queen-
Landed to tear my sight in two.
Kissed my wounds with honey and lime.
And there, on my small scared hands-
Two white caterpillars.
