What Is Fire?
I am fast interactions, I’m chemical changes. Most often, I’m oxygen orgies. The more space in the place where the substance is hot, the more frequent and fast the exchanges. I am cylinders lighting in waving flash points, the manifested spectrum of the elements’ colors, revealed at ignition. In my movement, I’m all-over joints. I am quick, electronic agitation. I am rapid small losses and gains. I’m the light and the heat that’s contained in all things, augmented atomic mutation.
