Calefaction - a Jaunt collab

01.11.2001

feeling kinda how a girl feels

Project 21 for Jaunt: spark.

Calefaction

so small
tiny ember
seed of change

sparks in the ether
soaring lives
scattered through the sky
littered across the ocean

innocent light
glowing against boards
of stable wall
against hay
and a cow enters history

the earth trembles
gas lines rupture
friction leads to spark
chain reaction
a city laid low

summer campfire
smell of sulfur
pine and hickory
companionship in the dark
warmth and s'mores
stories told around the glow

the germ of a story
or a conversation
a realization
revelation
that sets the mind burning

comforting snick
lighter snaps open
sparks start the
familiar glow
at the end of
a cigarette

film noir
curl of smoke
embers betray
the figure in the shadows

so small
tiny ember
leads to conflagration
glow of candle flame
spatter of fireworks

gunpowder
muskets and cannons
sunlight dapples oak and elm
precious life
spilled and lost -
or captured

trowel held high
flash powder,
white hot magnesium
images burnt
into the slow exposure
of negative
faces stare back
at us, challenging us
to tell their story

the spark of a look
starts - what?
friendship, perhaps
or love

some burn steadily for years
beacon to the soul
the gift of a chance meeting
others flame high
and gutter out quickly
or struggle fitfully
for years
never quite knowing
if there will be
another spark

so small
tiny ember
with the power
to destroy
or create
