The Art of Being by the Stove


red gold seethes
behind the glass
boxed within iron


gloves


a hatchet, poker
heaped basket of wood


two feet in thick socks
stretch out
through the splash of lamplight


the open page
Hockney's 'big trees at Warter'
years of attention


in the old green chair
the ongoing work
completes itself, quietly
