The Genius Under the Table

after our flood
when the house tried to swim apart
we bought spotted gum flooring
and set its beautiful knots
to tying us all back together

my toe follows the 
straight edges 
loving sun fingers 
but musing on dark corners

the spinning of dust

Written for deJackson’s dVerse Quadrille including the word “muse”
