POETRY: Ashes & Dust (7/4/‘23)

Ashes and dust
ground out of obsidian
Finer than pollen
blunted and broken.

Ashes and dust
a crust on your soul
Shatter the yoke
reclaim control.

Ashes and dust
windblown, blind and worn
Hang out your troubles
tattered and torn.

Ashes and dust
the shell starts to crack
Scatter like smoke
surrender control.
