The Art of Being by the Stove

red gold seethes
behind the glass
boxed within iron


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
