  1. putting a poem in a comment seems pretentious, but I will anyway, as this picture calls it to mind:

    Milkweed

    The bodies that seem to hold us
    The husk the hull
    Cannot hold us

    We are swollen
    With seed and spirit
    As immortal as wind

    Dying down
    The settled floss
    May fill a pillow

    With butterflies dreaming for us
    When our heads no longer rest
    On the loving hard shoulder of earth

    When the bodies that held us
    Cannot hold us
