A Phantom of Red Dust

She slid into a chapter
bound in the volume of life, 
a single stanza in effortless grace

she dwelt, 
among this paper kingdom
becoming a lady 
rounded with words
and ripely shining 
in a court of stars,

feted for beauty
searched out by curious 
seekers, from all over
all, asking the same question

but all she saw 
were visions of dawns 
piped through wormholes
from every galaxy,
she was allowed entry
to stroll the gallery of time

then life flickered 
in her peripheral 
from the farthest reach,
her little blue planet 
blinked out her name

as this phantom of red dust 
heard the call of home

she fell through a wormhole, 
confusing the whole universe, 
all over again,
with the echoes 
forever singing,
who ! are ! you ?
