The House of Dust1917The days, the nights, flow one by one above us,

The hours go silently over our lifted faces,

We are like dreamers who walk beneath a sea.

Beneath high walls we flow in the sun together.

We sleep, we wake, we laugh, we pursue, we flee.We sit at tables and sip our morning coffee,

We read the papers for tales of lust or crime.

The door swings shut behind the latest comer.

We set our watches, regard the time.What have we done?I close my eyes, remember

The great machine whose sinister brain before me

Smote and smote with a rhythmic beat.

My hands have torn down walls, the stone and plaster.

I dropped great beams to the dusty street.My eyes are worn with measuring cloths of purple,

And golden cloths, and wavering cloths, and pale.

I dream of a crowd of faces, white with menace.

Hands reach up to tear me.My brain will fail.Here, where the walls go down beneath our picks,

These walls whose windows gap against the sky,

Atom by atom of flesh and brain and marble

Will build a glittering tower before we die . . .The young boy whistles, hurrying down the street,

The young girl hums beneath her breath.

One goes out to beauty, and does not know it.

And one goes out to death.
