To any other eye upon the hill
Their flight entwined and ended
Helixed, then hidden in the upper limbs
The banging on the door used to punctuate the oscillations
“One, two, left, right, swerve left, spin right, left swing, right, leave. left.”
Torn wings of scale weighed in at just 20 seconds.
1200 days to drown out the drums.
To forget how a monarch and a swallowtail dance.
