The Butterfly Effect

But what about the butterflies everywhere
already moving their wings?
And isn’t there always a hurricane
beginning or blowing itself out or holding you
in its eye, even now?

How can you say it’s the butterfly’s wings that unleash the wind?
How can you say it’s not?

When he walks in the door yelling
are you sure there wasn’t some cause, some butterfly wing
so small you weren’t aware you were
starting anything? Are you sure it isn’t your fault
just for thinking you could fly in the first place?
