Dust with light in it, gentle falls
And lands on my eyelashes
Something lost if I blink
But I don't blink, I just stare out the window
At a bird who don't know I'm there
Or what a window is

Dust in a book. once bright
But it got trapped in the pages
So I opened it up
And a cloud of light pops out
It lingers there in the air
It lands on my desk
And I write my name in the light
And I blink and the light is just dust

The dirt the worms live in
Subterranean and dark always
Even with the sun out

Dust on the dirt, is always bright
Even at night, the dust reflective
A Milky Way on the soil
But I stay inside
With the dust that used to be bright
When it fell through the stream of light
But now it's just dull, dull dust
