“People were made of nothing so much as dust, and I couldn’t see that doctoring all that dust was a bit better than writing poems people would remember and repeat to themselves when they were unhappy or sick and couldn’t sleep.”

  1. I guess I probably should have added context. A friend of hers is a doctor and put down her work. He said her poems were like dust, meaning pointless. She couldn't think of anything to say back at the time and was reflecting on what she should have said. It makes more sense that way.
