Today's poem is by Jennifer Kronovet

They Dredge Up Visions

as if fires were always
a town
applied to materials.

There were the fires
that we dressed up
as offerings to belief.

And there were the fires
we made to match
the useless ones.

We manned the thoughts
we couldn't resist
as if they were feelings.
