“I close my eyes only for a moment and the moment’s gone
All my dreams pass before my eyes a curiosity
Dust in the wind. All we are is dust in the wind.”
– fr. lyrics of Dust in the Wind, Kansas
(for Ludwin R., 1978)
you left a strand of hair on my shoulder;
unmistakably yours (as it was long and wavy) –
i tried to brush it with my fingers
it would not leave my shirt;
like you, to me.
you left a kiss on my lips;
obviously yours (as it tasted of you) –
i tried to wipe it with my palm
it would not disappear;
like you, in my mind.
you left your heart in me;
certainly yours (as it beats
one with my heart).
you and me then,
iris and irid
in the eye of love.
you and me
