2 butterflies

2 butterflies
were fluttering around
each other.
having fun,
playing,
mating,
I don’t know what the hell
they were doing.
but they were carefree.
it seemed nice.
I watched them for some time.
I smiled.
exhaled and was calm.
why can’t I be like that?
they fluttered around
towards the highway
without a care in the world.
a semi truck came by
they exploded on the windshield
and that was the end of that.
I guess that’s why we aren’t
completely carefree.
we have to always be aware
that giant metal monsters
can wipe us out of existence
in less than a second.
I sighed,
frowned,
and thought about the bills
that needed paying.
