At the Foot of the Ozark Mountains
Anne Iverson


Two monarchs catch themselves in love,
merge involuntarily into motion and desire

Curved and synergetic the road asks
only that we don’t forget.

The mountains gone now
on the page before plead too

with the cattle peaceful
in their paragraphs.

How could I?
With the wild yellow flowers

impossibly at ease
like sentinels at the base

of a huge idea
to save the world?
