love & furnaces

it is an evolutionary advantage
to understand what causes pain

but it is neither hot coals
nor red stove-top coils

it is flesh-upon-flesh
the flames of love
that really make skin scream
scar the human shape
over & over & over
This blog is updated irregularly and has nothing to do with the poet's output. The poet is actually disturbingly prolific. He writes about 5 poems per day. The pages are everywhere, even stacked in the bathtub.
