The teeming was like a wounded butterfly

The teeming was like
A wounded butterfly
That perches for a time
Not knowing when should
Be its eventual rest;

Resigned to its undeserved wound,
In addition to the finality of decline,
So were the movements of the teem,

Foreseeing its forgetting,
Like a fulcrumic alarm clock.
