To Jonathan Penton's previous piece To Jonathan Penton's next piece
Staring into the fire and don't you want to know how to feel all that heat without getting burned? Don't you want to touch it Those orderly coals The fingerbone husks of wood ash Poke it with a stick and watch the sparks go mad watch the white patterns dissolve into glowing orange chaos Don't you want to reach for it and examine its perfection Take inside something stronger than yourself The most beautiful ecosystem, it eats that which is dead and shits out intense colors and throbbing energy Don't you want to let it take you and do as it will Don't you want to feel a heat beyond what you know how to feel?
