FIRE TO FIRE, by            
First Line: A van gogh stroke is your fire of hair
Last Line: On the world's high noon.
Subject(s): Van Gogh, Vincent (1853-1890)

A Van Gogh stroke is your fire of hair,
your face the field where lie two seeds
deep as the sunflower eyes at noon
in blue furrows of air.
If I am dumb, if I am thin as weeds,
root me up and then I'll die
where deathless flame still breathes.
And out of the ash of my dumb land
you'll see me burst again
with surge of light to match
your own, stroke fire with fire
on the world's high noon.
