a beautiful burning

by Sue Chenette, after how to write by Sean S, Point of View by Geo Vance, and Sighting by JKD

memory's brazen burning
whispered rush of flame
at the edge of cave-shadow

hooks for your mind or heart
shimmering shimmy-shaped
such tricks

even the glowing coals
refuse solidity:

look -- they've fallen together
ashes, and panoplies of sparks
