Dust Is Just Dead Voices

Our voices

Just as we left them

Aged a bit

Nearly take up a whole corner

By the bed

Where my old poems

Still sit on a Cherrywood desk

Still folded

 

A promise held

To the blotter

As the desk throws

Its shade about the floor

Still shines like

A pile of coins in the sun

Splayed within an

Old handprint

Still warm

 

A sun that still

Scatters our dead voices

In a shaft of light

My fingers trailing lines

Through the particles

Of what we had once said

When we were still young

Still in love

 

When our voices still lived.
