Dust Ways

Go easy on directions
and forget roadmaps
for there's nothing more defiant
more arrogant and stupid
than a speck of dust

And nothing more patient either

It can wait for centuries
under rock or root
move from pathway to shoe-sole
a wisp of hair to lamp post
windshield to book cover
disappear in sandstorm or rain
rise and shine and footnoted
and yet find a way
to a heart, a thought
a line of verse.
