Kristen de Kline #201 The Faux Fireplace

+
you can turn off the heat
that blows out the front

and watch the embers
glow
like a new flat-screen

the dog seems scared
the cat digs in his claws

+
outside by the kerb
you find:

a silver knife
a wooden spoon
an old suitcase
a red dictionary
an ocean with teeth

you think
they might
have fallen
off a truck
or out of a poem

+
inside you watch
red coals burst out
of the living room wall

it's strangely mesmerizing
watching faux flames
sitting here with you
drinking Lazy Yak
and Mud House

(not) killing time
