burn the fire and jump


dear heart


under all this is a centre of human jam

red and pulsing



what you feel touch your face

in a wavering immense cut


the sun   is hovering at her absolute mid point


do you feel that fucked and desperate gilding stir in you?



your stinking consecrated mulch?


throw yourself down on the floor like a bad dog


get on your knees       and lick the boards


get up again



the fire is doing things to  you


that feel amazing




this place   really         is
