Cycle 18: Fire

Air, mother of fire
I breathe, burn myself alive
Life is combustion
Ardent self-consuming art,
Phoenix dis^appearing act.

Act, from agere,
Latin – to do act lead drive
        Agile stratagems
        Ambiguous agonies
Driving every act – passion.

Passion dictates – WRITE!
And ravishes me of words.
Writing with one hand
I erase with the other –
Writing I erase myself.

Self self go away
Come again another day
Noman wants to play.
(Throw tomorrow down the stream
Life is but a firedream.)
