Dusty Feet

here are my dusty feet
  turned toward the earth
ashes to ashes:    flesh to stone

planted deep in soil
  rock and grit and

wash me, oh dew
  glisten on pebble and nail
wash me, oh sweet sweat

feed me with your ancient salt
  enclose me in the breaking waves
grace and water within---    without

feet still turned toward earth
