beauty in futility

dust
our human legacy
proof that we were here

that indisputable footprint
indicator
of our collective presences

what else do we leave behind,
to what else do we reduce
our endeavors?

to what do we aspire
staring into space
at forgotten histories

with no claim to the cosmos
yet
the cosmos made us

our dreams
and our varied complications
from so little
