Fire Dance

March 15, 2010

“A man can bare himself before others only out of a particular kind of love. 

A love which acknowledges, as it were,

that we are all wicked children”

                                                                   — Ludwig  Wittgenstein




I can dance around a fire.

If the spirits take notice,

If they’re drawn by this sight,

As  we   might  be

lured by the light

of dead stars, already,

If the spirits take notice of

Me at the blaze

My body and face,

(Not at all faking

What I choose  to let loose)

Shiny, and shaking  away my disease,

Let said spirits kindly

sign off on release.

    I tearfully remember a fire, a drum circle for the dead, and here you write HIS song.
