Heat




Foliaceous experimentations,
     I make lime by burning shells.

Late night awareness,
     all thoughts, all sense.

Can't write, can't paint, can't sleep.

Poetic energies jam prose signals,
No good for doing anything now.

I hope tonight the stove doesn't burn out.
     Or I'll wake icy cold in my bed.

Shiver, clap, and count every breath
A victory,
     not to have to sleep like an animal
     curled up in the snow.

Heat liberates time, for the fine arts.
