Of Toasters And Open Flames - Poem by Bill Grace

I do not like an open flame
For in it there could be
A fuse of vastly more loss
Than aesthetic or even spiritual gain.

But flame for spirit is better
Than a world possessed of none
Imagine my sense of betrayal
When the toaster wanted fun
And in process headed towards burning the house down.
