A fire kissed a fire
And a fire burnt
Two flames charred together
One singed, burnt alone

 Like a tendril unashamed
The fire coiled itself over the other
Fluttered, defiantly in searing wind
Stroked a spine as it slithered up
Lipped the defenceless neck that quivered
Burnt the nape with its tapered tip.

One surrendered
The other devoured
Licking, flame by flame
The third watched
Like the cactus watched the rosemary and bee.

All three writhed
Their heart an inferno.
