Things You Can Never Kill

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

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

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

for Quickly



  1. The impression I came away with this is indefatigable. This is a perfect example of staking out a subject domain and mastering it. Wonderful.
