DPF / Stafford

For dust of all kinds and train travel, from A Book of Luminous Things, edited by Czeslaw Milosz.

from Vacation / by William Stafford (1914-1993)

One scene as I bow to pour her coffee:–

Three Indians in the scouring drouth
huddle at the grave scooped in the gravel,
lean to the wind as our train goes by.
Someone is gone.
