Day 11

First, some thoughts from Jason Schneiderman--excellent poet, intelligent reader of comics.  

And now:

From Christina Davis's Forth A Raven, from Alice James Books:

The Humanities

Tomorrow the man comes
to school me in the Fire.

You can lead a whole life surrounded by firemakers
and the putters out of fire
and think you have built a fire, and not have.

If the taming of blazes was the making of man,
I will have been a beast
until that hour when the man and I kneel down
with the tinder.

Also, no one has taught me how to die.

It is not listed
among the disciplines.
