To Watch As Dust Falls

               Shuffle. Hussle.
        The World. Quick. Fast. Moves.
                    Flash.
         Noise. Puzzle. Steam. Scream.

Aggravate.                         Intoxicate.

Sooner.
       Quicker.
               Exploding.
                         Spinning.
                                  Circulating.

                   refocus
                 a dust grain
                   falling
                    softly
                down
                     down
                          down
                  tumbling on
              the gentle pockets
                    of air
              sparkle and reflect
               sun’s warm light
                   drifting

                       t
                       i

                   Burning.
                Harsh. Stress.
                   Pressure.
                   Pressure.
                   Pressure.
