Recreating A Miraculous Object


I have lived through every war in my lifetime

Like everyone I am


A vessel that takes the shape

Of what it contains


If you feed me to fire

I will become fire


Place your teeth upon me and I will be

The sound from your mouth


You see that axe that axe

Is me


Cleaving myself from my self

In your hands which are

Also me


When you arrive

I become you coming


The snow you came in

The next great war


I live through

Janaka Stucky
