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

 

 

 

 

 

remarkable
