Vintage Words


Sand and fire, time and smoke.

What Eve saw when she looked back.

What Adam thought about: I want

what you have that I can not get.

Do I have enough power

to send a country over there

to get it for me.


Grit and charcoal, clocks and flame.

Soon, the globe will warm, then

the globe will cool. Throw another log

or another life on the fire. Keep
