St. Fursey

there is a fire that rages

and wakes you from sleep

curls your hair

into the tightest spirals

those hands that reach out

from under your bed

to touch your ankles in the night

to show you the whites of their eyes

those fingertips that burn

their whorls into your skin

and the heat that always remains
