Read Good

I once threw a book
by Anthony De Mello
onto a fire and looked
at the flames blaze bright yellow,
sulphuric tinged; then a bluish dirty green
shot up hot and hissed real keen.
Someone might say it was the gloss
of the paperback cover
and the binding's glue that tossed
up flames of suspect livid glow,

but I don't think so.
