Episode: "Dust" by Dorianne Laux
Born in Augusta, Maine, in 1952, Dorianne Laux became a published poet only after years of hard, hands-on work as a sanatorium cook, gas station manager, and maid. "Poems keep us conscious of the importance of our individual lives," says Laux. "Dust" examines a fleeting moment of connection that is swept aside and mostly lost in the busy activity of an average day.
