why would anyone
wish to break this
butterfly on the wheel?

i know nothing of those
trolls in the undershadows
but i demand all the same:
how dare you?

may the daylight
catch you
unaware

          Well, it wasn’t quite the right word when I thought hard about it — the power dynamics implied were incorrect for what I had in mind and it was overall a bit archaic (which is why it might have seemed unfamiliar) in a poem that hinted at some archaic symbolism, but was ultimately a modern theme. Thanks for getting me to think about the word choice harder, even if that wasn’t your intent. 🙂
