Butterfly & rock

Here’s a similar thought to Olson’s (below) but somehow delicater. Olson’s bears down, you can feel the weight of the town crouched on the stone. Niedecker’s comes up through the butterfly and with its lightness.

Life is natural
       in the evolution
              of matter

Nothing supra-rock
       about it
              simply

butterflies
       are quicker
              than rock

– Lorine Niedecker, “Wintergreen Ridge”
