The smell of singed hair

The smell of singed hair,
I warm my hands
over the open flame.

Number 7, January 2012 river of stones...

Playing with fire! I can smell the danger!

I wasn't playing! Honest. I was simply turning on a burner for a kettle and the heat made me realize how cold I was, so I spontaneously warmed my hands over ht eflame. But a little too close. Especially for one as hirsute as myself!
