Miss Butterfly

Miss Erika Davies is familiar to San Diego music fans for her devotion to the old-timey ballad and her frequent performances at Lestat's West. Visit her MySpace page to learn more.

carnivorous mounds of butterflies tap at my toes
clicking at my hip
ten thousand types
hovering by with their own hello
delightful species
i lean over too far and i become one

i've crossed the line

longing for flight
i take speed
i glide
flitting and floating from flower to flower
bright and cheery
lemony dew
miss butterfly to you
