Some people say that kilns

are made of brick

and electricity


but they're wrong.

Some people say

that kilns


are made for firing glass,

but that's only

wishful thinking.


Those who know

know that kilns

are really homes


for gods

heartless gods

who lurk


behind the elements

waiting to be worshipped

a body


of glass, an opalescent heart

transparent flesh.

There are those who come


to the kiln in search

of the place that the gods

call home.


There are those who yearn

to take cold glass

and make it flow


flow not like a river

not like a cloud

not even like


a god in the elements


the heart of the kiln


like the faint

melting of a god

becoming glass



two hearts

compatible and warm.
