To and From

Mom opened her mouth to speak. A cloud of dust puffed from her lips. She blinked and waved irritably. Lori snickered, sending out little spurts of gray dust. Dad opened wide, a river of dust pouring from his throat to mound and spill from his lap.

Ashley ran. She hit the door at full speed and it puffed into dry fragments around her.

Her legs sank through the floor and...

she fell...


the dust and the wind
into the outside and the sky
above dust
the road below
dust and somewhere
there was dust
she ran

For the title, at least. I like to make references and allusions there, you may have noticed. ;-)
