Dust Devil

.
.
Was it a relief when the wind blew her away?
Or would it have been better if she had died?
Did he want something more easily explained?
.
Why is he sweeping the corners at night?
.
Did he think of the sympathy, “There was
Nothing that could be done. No one knew.”?
Unwanted, she became as lifeless dust.
.
Why does he dream of whirling dust?
.
An unfortunate prognosis would have been
A more pleasant and believable outcome.
In a loveless desert, even charity evaporates.
.
Why is he sweeping the corners at night?
