Eating the Sun

Eating fire
is your ambition:
to swallow the flame down
take it into your mouth
and shoot it forth, a short or an incandescent
tongue, a word
exploding from you in gold, crimson
unrolling in a brilliant scroll

To be lit up from within
vein by vein

To be the sun

(margaret atwood)

    Been a while since I've read anything by Atwood. Nice bit of Canadianna! Approve! :)

    Yeats possibly? The line "The bee-loud glade" was always a picturesque reference in my mind.
