#QuemPensa é Spiralist: “Fireplace for Winter”

#QuemPensa é Spiralist: “Fireplace for Winter”

…I like to watch things burn.

 

The flames engulfing the wood

The way I’d like them around these paper bones

The way we all burn out in time:

slowly but surely.
We bend over on the infernal heat

Cracking open, embers fly like fireworks

The only way not to die out there in the cold

In communion with the cosmos

 

When the fire dies out

Bless the land with the ashes

Or pour them into the open sea

Scattered across time

Like all the moments which will cease to be

For no one shall remember us much

When all memory becomes distorted by the tales

Our children will make up for all they don’t know…

…and never will.
