For Dust

I fell in love with you

When it became clear I come from you

I went further back

Than Adam or Eve or any old story

And there you were

Just you and me

And a lot of space

I want to remember

Where I come from

If I don’t go back far enough

So much pain and tension is there

But if I can listen to that space

Between inhale and exhale

That moment when destruction

Blends with creation

There you are

My first particle

of love
