Dust and Hair

by Matthew J. Spireng


Dust and hair untouched near the corner,

the old oak floor mostly clean but for


there. Sunlight has spotted it there near

the corner, something left of the losses


from before. Anyone know who it was

may have been here before? Someone says


shed flakes of skin are what dust is mostly

made of. Who is it, I wonder, lies there?
