START­ING

Ashes to ashes,
dust to dust,
but what about the part

in between
the two extremes,
the part with brain and heart?

How did the ashes,
how did the dust,
ever get so smart

that they could turn
into a thing
it hurts to break apart?

How did the ashes,
how did the dust,
com­mand that mys­tic art

not of learn­ing
how to end
but learn­ing how to start?
