Downward Pressure #Experience

September 25, 2019


Mule fat on buckeye
Falling into the rhythm
Increasing downward pressure
The board begins to smoke
It stings my eyes and throat
The spindle rolls between my hands
Starting to form blisters

Increasing downward pressure
Black dust begins to fall
Getting somewhat closer
Yet it still seems so far off

Increasing downward pressure 
And falling on the dust
A small orange glow 
A little coal, at last

The coal goes into
This bundle of dry grass
It starts to smoke
Burning my lungs
Blow that flame to life
Rough draft. A sort of narrative of what it's like making fire with a fire board and spindle
