Fire Dancers
(after the painting by Mark Tobey)

by Neil Ellman

Black fire, gray smoke
black auroras dance
on blistering stones

black tongues lick
the empty sky
abandoned by the stars

black the night, black
the flames
that hypnotize the eyes.

black divinity, how black
the prayers
leaping from the pyres

Black ash and flares
how dark the music
that makes them dance.
