…and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work.
                                                                  1 Corinthians 3:13
 

Heat, fuel, oxygen: ingredients
easily
           managed,
                              easily tamed. Elements
abundant since long before
there was talk of war, of famine, of
plague—eons
                            before we bore the capacity
to influence Earth’s incorruptable
                                                                  majesty.
Light-bringer, healer, warmth-giver,
killer
           of night.

Easily unmanaged,
                                      easily untamed.
