dust is mostly made of human skin

dust is mostly made of human skin —
remember how to blow dust away.
depression is just letting dust stay.
(settling, settling)

maybe happiness is clean and tidy like
effort. like joy. or messy bright maybe
like Holi and gardening
but not dusty. never covered
in a fine layer of human skin.

look everyone in the eye
think of anything to say
on a sign
to hold high.
read more than headlines.
don’t listen to music on the radio.

you can’t just let everything
good
be.

you have to fight
clean
instead.
