Memorial (adj.)

Remember to make room
for the vacancy, the shovel
that can do nothing but create

two things: holes and piles
of their contents. Insects emerged
from a dirt mountainside which

moments before was dark
space to navigate blind. You
caught one, a pillbug which

uncurled in the pinch of soil
you placed in your palm.
See there, you said, home.
