Poem by Jordan Layne Palmer (USA)

Published in The Ofi Press issue 36.


 Dust Particle

Intriguing –
this tiny dust particle floating in front of my eyes.
Blow at it.
No! Come back!
You are my only company right now!
“Enlighten me,” I say.
The dust particle just floats.
“Ah! I see what you’re doing there!” I exclaim. 
Trying to teach me how to fly.
