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


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
