Poem: Sparks 

Two sparks approach in the high grass. The meeting
of their eyes ignites a flame. The mingling of blood
in their cut palms set off a brilliant conflagration, seen

They build castles, moats, and forests. They cross continents,
rivers, seas, and oceans. Then a wave comes. An unexpected
wave dowses the fire first stoked in the high grass.
