furnace &
boiler & chimney &

cardinal inaugural seminal

your turn
& your turn & your turn

words too heavy for a page

& we smell of sex & holy tome

wielding a mist at dusk

whatever has eaten that grain
& whatever has licked that soup

surfacing heaving surging

crevice &
globe & seasoning

words too hard for a template

& we
hew to the gut & fire
