Through the Fire
— for Adrian & David

If you were clay and a maker shaped you
as a mother with a dog, lingered to get
your gaze aslant, your shoulder leaning
into the fur of the many-nippled avatar
you held forth as shield and beloved
together, and if the maker set you
in the fire, in the kiln cave seared
by blue tongue and gold, and if
in that fire you learned the trick
of turning from flesh to bone,
from thought to talisman, folding
fear inside out to become beauty,
turning clay to stone and ash to glaze,
then you would be a warning riveting
the viewer, who could not turn away
from indelible survival, from the tough
tenderness of a hand in fur,
of love remembering loss,
and so made stronger.
