Volcanic Verses: First Fragments

we'll take our verse
well-cooled thank you
black lava not
orange magma

antique tongs hung
in the shed not
tindering tongues
dancing over

our heads well-formed
and safe-to-the-
touch with touching
ironic turns

hammered in
at the very end
to advertise
the icy brain

at work with words that
pinch emotions
worthy of state
