Dust braids two memories from a poet’s youth. In one memory, the young man remembers a last moment with a lover. In the other memory, he recalls his final hours with his dying grandfather. Ultimately, this contemplative examination of the nature of grief becomes a poetic meditation of “water, skin and dust.”
