handful of dust/

©2022 Michael Raven

wearied from blind
reaching in the dark
fingers outstretched
disconnected, arthritic
are my efforts worth a
lone wheatback?
like dumb seers screen
scrolled eightball messages
float to the surface
slag in the slurry
informing when they declare
it takes but effort
in reciprocity
to establish worth

i hold but
a handful of dust
in the bitter cold
