You're So Hot

Poetry Class with Chelsea Diane 1/15/24

Writing Prompt: You’re So Hot 

You're so hot

You’re the unavoidable flame 

BTU machine 

Furnace of a thousand fires 

Where you take a peaceful nap

No fourth man needed

No man needed at all

Hot is your rest

Your natural state of repose

Hot is your safe place alone

Where transformation happens 

And when you deign to emerge 

Into the hungry world 

Candle wax drips from your skin 

Like fire-fairy-dew 

Everything melts in your presence

Shedding all the superfluous 

Down to the core 

Of re-birth ready ashes

Come near me If you dare
