“what matters most is how well you walk through the fire” - Charles Bukowski

Or, how well the fire walks through you
as an inkling that patterns itself
on the back of a box turtle
in the middle of a gravel road
- you slow the car to a stop,
slide out, set the turtle on the grass, get
behind the wheel - this treatise from the meadow,
these measures you take to spare a life.
