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?
