VARIATIONS ON A THEME BY WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS
I chopped down the house that you had been saving to live in next summer.
I am sorry, but it was morning, and I had nothing to do
and its wooden beams were so inviting.
We laughed at the hollyhocks together
and then I sprayed them with lye.
Forgive me. I simply do not know what I am doing.
I gave away the money that you had been saving to live on for the next ten years.
The man who asked for it was shabby
and the firm March wind on the porch was so juicy and cold.
Last evening we went dancing and I broke your leg.
Forgive me. I was clumsy and
I wanted you here in the wards, where I am the doctor!

Partly because I finished reading Thermal Delight in Architecture by Lisa Heschong (which is fantastic), but mostly because I found a stash of firewood and kindling under the stairs, I decided it was time to christen my fireplace. I think I like my apartment more as it gets colder outside; there really is some kind of thermal attraction going on here. So I suggest you read this book and build a fire, maybe at the same time.
