AUGUST 2013

The Tiger Swallowtails arrive
the day before the Monarchs
floating to hibiscus, hills

yellow or dirt bare.
Calves come in a month
as evenings turn breezy,

flies thick and annoying.
At a distance, the top tomcat
entertains upon the welcome mat

to your mother’s trailer.
Over a month of 100 degrees,
everyone’s ready for a change.
