Cosmic Dust: For David

ISSUE:  Winter 1995

On nights when you can’t sleep
I think you open the doo
to the sky

and taking out a small broom
sweep the cosmic dust
into tidy piles

and label them
with phosphorescent ink
from the nearest moon.

Therefore the morning sky
is nothing if not pure
blue. Therefore you sleep

past noon so the telltale dust
caught in your eye
won’t give you away.
