Not Be Essence That Cannot Be



                          RADIANT HEAT

                                 for George

                          when two
                          bodies meet
                          it's alright
                          radiant heat—
                          understanding
                          what it is

                          that exploding
                          sound when
                          two can see
                          each other—

                          and

                          the line of
                          sight is not
                          obscured
                          
                          the surface
                          sees—

                          like a black
                          body

                          a
                          perfect radiator
                          a hot
                          object
                          
                          thru dust smoke
                          radiant heat
                          flo between
                          them
