From The Properties of Dust

Hail - Gresham, Oregon. April 20, 2008 - www.aflitt.com

Stalks of wheat are punished

by the hail.


Winds riot against the battered pickup.


Worn boots press the mud.


He carries the Earth under his

Nails,


but the combines are

useless now.

The Properties of Dust

The Properties of Dust was a small book I put together in 2005 for a desktop publishing class at Portland State University. Many of these pieces were written specifically for the book project, and the rest date back to as early as 1990.  The pieces were accompanied by a photo or two in the original book, but, in most cases, I am using different, more recent, photos with this series of posts.
