Dust and Ash

Lisa Cox

Dust blows on
The wind
Coalescing
Small whirlwind
Fires burning
Far away
Send char and
Smoke
Into the wind
Bound up mass
Whirling tighter
Coalescing
Forming
Putting together
What had crumbled
Into ash and dust
Features, fingers
Empty chest
Empty head
Returning from dust
And ash
We see for a moment
What we become
Our shadow self
That remains
Before we return
To dust and ash
