in the empty light
and alone
you discovered last night
you were just
dust

― Weihui Zhou

This one is a little more sad and dark from your other new poems. And yet a little more memorable. And the message and theme, I find them to be unfortunatley true. I love the title as well. I assume it means this one was literally the last poem in your notebook.
