"For The Man On The Yellow Bench" by Milda Dulhunty

Can he unthread
those disenchanted dreams?

The man who is curled
on a yellow bench
under a palm in the park.

Shredding the sunlight
with his arms embracing his face
like a cocoon.

Can he be a butterfly
when he wakes in starlight?

Time to press ink to paper and surprise me.
