The Dusty Man

20 Years of Dust

Dust contains tiny bits of life.

___

20 years of dust

It came out of nowhere.

I went to sleep

And it found me

 

An inch thick and a mile wide

Like a blanket,

But cold

And lonely.

 

Befriended by dust

And a lonely couch

Lost without a map

Sick without a doctor.

 

I can’t figure out

Where the dust came from.

Some say it is stardust

To me, it smells like smoke.

 

Discharge from an explosion

Distant energy hurtling

Volcano dust

Everywhere

 

Covered in the embers of a fire

That longs to rekindle

Still warm

Coaxing me back to life

 

The dust whispers

Life is dusty

You are covered in it

It’s in your soul

 

Dust is in your DNA

It contains tiny bits of life

Stardust

Leftover and ready

 

The tiny bits of yesterday

Can weigh you down

But know that your worries

Are but a speck of your life

 

Marriage, kids, job, and life

It’s all found in your dust

You have clouds of it following you

So keep moving.

Keep it Real
