From the Vault of Dust

Dust the unclear beginning where any right mind will insist on its being rearranged. Dust, the hugging, gripping fog of destiny. Dust the unrepeatable repetition, the unmatched miracle, the element in which it is possible to feel homeless. Dust the "community of those who have nothing in common," dust the first and only community, communities themselves as constructions of dust giving life to more dust. Falling in love with the dust of the world as growing at home in the homelessness, finding a wayward way into every crack, spreading and affirming all the dust and the splippage of all the dust. To face one another and to see one another in this dusty world will always require getting more than a little dust in our eyes and throwing dust in one another's faces.

  2. My interpretation is that it is about possibilities, personalized, making a wake-up call. It’s a beautiful poem.
