bristle

bristles

I bend
beneath your feet

you stand
straight
above me

I bristle

you scuff
as though your shoes
are made
for something better

I am a forest whorl
do you see the paths between
plantations

I am the world
all to myself
you
a passing step

a step into
out of
my doorway

breathe deeply
I release my dust

breathe again
for I have more

what has been your gift
to me
in drifts
and spores
