there is a border to cross
before I dare ask
her to reveal eyes
that have witnessed
an undoing
such as the like,
a border to cross

where every flower
has put in it’s time

therefor, it is
milkweed I plant,
to draw the Monarch to
her side

so I can watch her
count wing beats
as the world
reassembles itself
amid her distraction
