Kilauea: A Poem



kilauea

by Philip Scott Waikoloa

viscous

smoldering

oozing through vents to depths

no diver dares

molten

glowing

heat so hot that touching

no midas tries

soldering

joined together by melting

stitching patches of

cooled and cracked

an island chain forming

rock and iron

and the greenest of life

worn smooth by water and time

viscous

air thick with love

and bound by aloha
