Hues of warm
colors of heat

Red of rapid oxidation
orange of vaporization
yellow of light

Lighting the night
relieving the night’s chill
mesmerizing our eyes
our thoughts

Swirls as fine
as a demon’s hair
on the way home
from the salon

Fostering the want
to tell stories
not necessarily 
ghost stories

Stories with nothing to do
with heat or color.
