From, 'Why Things Burn,' (c) Daphne Gottlieb

All power can be
dangerous:
Direct

or alternating,
you, socket to me.
Plugged in and the grid

is humming,
this electricity,
molecule-deep desire:

particular friction, a charge
strong enough to stop
a heart

or start it
again; volt, re-volt--
I shudder, I stutter, I start

to life. I've got my ion
you, copper-top,
so watch how you

conduct yourself. ...

LOVE the wordplay, wish I'd written this!

And my response ...


they say lightning
never strikes

the same place
twice.  'They'

don't know.  i
reach towards

the Heavens,
hoping to be

connected once
more.  you knock

me off my feet ---
i melt.  i  b u r n.

thunderstruck.
touch me.  again.  

(c) 2010, Karla Dorman (11/19)

High voltage stuff! As a former copper top now turned silver, I can attest that metallurgy dictates silver as the better conductor. Thus when lightning does strike the second time, the connection will knock you straight on your cheeks. Patrick

Great response to the original, Karla. To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction; MORE than equal in this case! This orchestrated heat needs no conductor. Meltdown accomplished! xx

En-lightening Karla! How many coulombs flow from your creative mind in a day. With each beautiful strike the timpani reverberates, titillates this reader's imagination and arrhythmic heartbeat. Very clever, very creative and an upbeat read my dear friend. I bid you love and peace. Jon Michael
