Burning Down

In the places
Where dark fire smoulders
Among the roots and dirt
And secret crawling things that hold us 
        It has come down
        Even in these places
        The silent flame burns.
Do not be surprised that the divine seduction
Has found this place and filled it 
With its virgin fire,
For all things are made beautiful
In the Lord's time.
