Hearth:
heart and
earth

two places
where I bank
the embers

rekindle
arise anew
in updraft

spastic flames
at first
then
righted to roar
at last

in perfect
imperfect
perpetuity

an
internal
eternal
flame

perhaps
a stoke
or two
more

an infinitesimal
tweak of the flue
is all it takes

to extinguish
either flame
