Devil In A Perfect World

First, there's the fire.
Then the earth
the fire's stifled by.
In time there's stone
and what's left over.
And what's left over
begins to breathe, begins
to outgrow its meager
jelly-fingered frame.
What's left over begins
to mix among itself, begins
to notice things like its
difference. Difference
is where he comes in.
