Timber

“The heart is an organ of fire.”
– Michael Ondaatje

Inside of you together
           we will light fire. 

And it will trickle from your
pelvis up to your rib cage, with 
the smoke of thousand timbers. 

Like furnace into palm laid onto skin.
Cascading into hearts. 

Our breaths would be warmer 
than the gasses flowing on the curves 
of molten wax and molten clay. 

Inside of you together
           we will light fire

      and together it will burn
              and it shall consume us –
