OMG I'm totally buggin

Part I of a diptych by Imani Etilé

Lifestyle & Identity

Metamorphic Regression

Do butterflies ever wish they could crawl back into their cocoon?

Must I die to rest.

I miss my mother’s womb

warmth of her breast.

A hungry caterpillar ate

I’m now full.

Stomach stretches, stretches

please explode.

I’m sick of consuming but it's all that I do

I hope I’m a caterpillar 

because, if I’m a butterfly

I will die soon.
