Compatibility

 

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

touching

the heart of the kiln

 

like the faint

melting of a god

becoming glass

 

fusing

two hearts

compatible and warm.
