Things You Can Never Kill

[1]
You can never kill the monarchs
though we thought we would when
we handled &wrapped them for release
at mom’s funeral

[2]
That indelible sky
with small shadows reconciling to the wind
is another thing you can never kill

[3]
And even if our monarch memory
is mistakenly misfigured, it must live forever
because it sputtered &insisted right there
on the greenest of green, green lawns
