If Only in Our Memories

We will write on this dead ground

with fallen trees

whose butts are colored to resemble Crayons

and we will leave earthy/waxy residues

across this landscape’s chalkboard

before lifting our eyes skyward

to capture the parachuting clouds

in our butterfly nets

where we began this adventure of collecting intransience

in our minds

by leaving our substance on every surface.

We will write on this dead ground

and watch it come alive,

if only in our memories.
