Milkweed

Larger than reality,
uncertainty looms.
Failure to communicate,
how human is that?
Our wants
are so much greater
than what is possible,
or likely.
Our wishes
are daydreams,
at best.

A butterfly
has a simple view
and set of goals.
Food and water,
sex and death.
Some butterflies
migrate
thousands of miles.
Tiny creatures
with amazing goals
(and destinations)!

Incredible structures,
junkyard delights!
Weedy identity
and reputation.
Toxic imaginings.
Only sometimes
triumph and joy.
Feast for
small wanderers. Milkweed!
