We dusted the mantel and the mantel pieces

before we swept the floors and threw out the casualties

I replaced the water and put a flower or more in every vase

   each a new jewel set against our adornments

Your face was spectacular

    the picture of ridges, subtlety, and muses

Something as old as the earth and greater than its surface 

came to mind and we sat with each other

dust, dinosaurs, and Saturn in our living room
