Dusting


She has a preoccupation with dust.
How it lies.
How it returns.
Knowing it is dead skin
makes her flesh crawl,
although as it is her house
it is mostly hers anyway.
She knows
with every breath the dead skin mounts
and despite a damp dusting
she is secretly working against herself
to reclaim the house for her past.
