Monday Poem

Water Snapping Off Your Skin

That water snapping off your skin
in a shower

its warmth is the same energy
toked in the sun

Its stoker is coy and cruel behind
the mask of creation

behind a bright sunrise
a fierce fire in his fist

Is the one

doing and undoing
damning or undamning
burning and unburning

This fire was
never begun
