Butterfly, Loch Avon

For day five of the PAD challenge. Prompt: a "metamorphosis" poem.

in four-color plates, this
special featurette of our

ten steps to a new
curving script to detail
this cunning
to be pulled off (in a
most determined fashion)
between the marshalled
efforts of: dressmaker,
manicurist, and
the like, not
forgetting, of course,
some themes of self-
improvement (so dear to
our editorial hearts) whether
whisking eggs or
curling our eyelashes

and here she is, presented on
the penultimate page, our paragon,
our gold and ivory baby, our butterfly, her
teeth tearing into peachflesh,
ready, finally, for her close-up
