soft patina of dust - poem


soft patina of dust, toner drawing on paper, 2019

worn down

like the face of these cliffs


forever exposed

to whims of wind and weather


rough

some spots smooth

whole, yet interspersed with fractures


low in my abdomen

a cave, whose inhabitant left long ago


space collects

a soft patina of dust

until a flame is reignited
