As seen in this image, American Snouts often perch on branches as if to imitate a dead leaf. This small, relatively dull colored butterfly got its named because of the pronounced elongation of its labial palpi into a prominent snout — the better with which to suck.

The most meaningful engine of change,
powerful enough to confront corporate power,
maybe not so much environmental quality,
as the economic development
and growth associated with the effort to improve it.

American politics causes me to look away,
to look away to nature for other images 
to cradle my shaken emotions, 
images that help awaken the shared
suffering of broken hearts, which have 
become symbolic victims of our times as we
seek the rapture associated with being alive.

Why show my top-side

When my dull bottom-side blends

So well with this branch.

I am who I am
and always will be.

Knowing who I am
frees me to reinvent

my being.

Friends lament
as the caterpillar

becomes the butterfly —

“There was nothing in him
that told us he was going
to be a butterfly.”

“Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities.
The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices
but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence.”
