The Butterfly

Chaos theory goes
like this:
if a butterfly

flaps its wings
in the Himalayas
then its

effects will
be felt
in San Francisco.

Yeah, maybe,
but only
by another butterfly

which will
think to itself,
"What the hell

is that stupid
butterfly doing
in the Himalayas?"

Mt. Everest moved
a thousandth

of an inch
closer to
the Dali Lama.

But, maybe it was not
the butterfly
flapping its wings,

maybe it
was just
the butterfly pooping.
