(Re)writing

The pulled curtains, the burnt shirt, rug, bucket. Returned erupting, rumbling, ruined, subsided surface.

Leaned, singed sleeve. Kitchen filled heat itself, grinding, pitched. Minutes:

Sparks dragged away. Water apart: hands. Caldera, fast after

Round holes, yellow roaring nothing, of course.

Typewriter on fire, flying, require.

Face made table aflame

after an excerpt in The Writing Life by Annie Dillard, from NaPoWriMo.net
