Magpie Tales 34

Blue Heat

"Crystal blue persuasion....."*

When you were introduced,
grandma had that eye—
that keen recognition
that she knew         you
were the chemistry;
a combustible wick
for a perfect flame
swirling          searing
the tornado chimney
to overtake any room.

* From the from 1969 hit song Crystal Blue Persuasion..... written and performed by Tommy James and The Shondells
