The 60 Hour Fire

Silver Fox Pottery opens the kiln to find these treasures below!

60 Hour Fire

They are slowly burning the house

small kindling held, considered

then thrown into the throat of the fire

cords of wood, floor to ceiling in the living room

the linoleum of the kitchen pulling up

from the misstepped foot

cords in the kitchen, cords holding

up the unsturdy second floor.


Cords of wood in an old house

No, they really aren’t burning the house down. 🙂
