dust to dust


he was inclined to outlaw dust
ab initio sans merci
warrrrior tattoed shouts from rooftops
and again he prowled searching
for unrest to turn to
shapes, his came from guns and jaws
from sweat nights of nameless fears
conquered by the warrrrior
whom dust drew closer than the trees
who rose from dust for dust
the color of a soil of a chaos
that came apart in the streets
as dust crept up their veins
crawled out their grateful skin
to warrrrrior cries they became kin
dust flung itself around
in great violent storms
a dash of red relief
and the shapes were left to sing
reality is dust to dust
new dust gathered with old
piled in corners unused
ignored waiting
to become he again
to be of use
to feel
