Measured movements

I’m still weeding
except where a snail
— that patron saint
of sow weed— trails
and last week’s caterpillar
is already transforming
into a Monarch.

What was settled

We spade in a new shape
for the garden, listening
to the silence in the calling
pondering how the treeful
of crows would look just like a tree
if I couldn’t hear the sound and
missed the emptying upwards.
