829 Gotta Love Lust 5-4-19

Be ye not leary of lust.
Lust is loves kindling.

See two compainonable logs,
split so to rest together
in the fire place,
nursing simmering embers,
needing only a toss
of shavings and twigs
to ignite the flames again.

Be glad for lust,
for soon,
too soon,
all cools,
hearts hearth-stone’s swept clean,
cold ashes dumped from the skuttle.

and we burn
no more.
