Space heater

Many sources of warmth.  Sun, hands, and the artificial.  Isn't space heater an interesting phrase.  What generates warmth in poetry?  The poem being read.  Being heard.   Like a space heater poetry can be moved around.  Like many vegetables and rice in a wok are moved easily by spoon.  Poetry, by pen.

    and in the college dorms she had her way
    a well-oiled ball bearing of a mind
    rolling around the ancient campus

    stolen pies from the kitchen &
    all the hushed whispers before bedtime
