The God of Fire
by Jan Oscar Hansen
Bookmark and Share
 

It took him twenty years
to write his novel.
Twenty refusals later
he gave the manuscript
to the fire which
greedily absorbed it.

A phone call from nowhere,
"send us another novel"
It took twenty more years
to write a new book
and the god Agni
burnt his hands.

As a thank you,
Success at last, he cried
to a man with a yellow helmet
carrying an axe.
