incurable volumes

outside is a coldness;
it is a crisp, sterile world
where sound travels in a straight line
and words never return to you
not like the hothouse, diseased inside –
every phrase is a virus
speaking fruitful, incurable volumes,
making light of a fevered fire
by which to see what we burn
