Questions go back to mist and dust
When answering the last questions
By women misty eyed about poems.

A poet’s sand stands fully answered.
A  mist is in hills and women’s eyes.
But  dust seems all over our bodies.

Parijat flowers may be  last answers
To question of beauty in love of mist
A fall to dust ,feet up and face down.

Questions about beauty are steeped
In dust, where flowers drop by night
Their bloody feet up and faces down.

(After Carl Sandburg’s poem Last answers)
