termite crematorium (for the firewood man)

termite crematorium (for the firewood man)

every night
i put the log in
they burrow deeper, and the fire finds them, and they die.
I sweep their dust up every morning,
with my bare hands,
as befitting.

if you hire a burglar to build your house
don't be surprised when a few items go missing

the moon robotess



the moon robotess sits
in lairs and caves
awaiting prayers
she cannot hear:
there is no air there
